The monument comprises an enclosed settlement of prehistoric date, visible as a series of cropmarks on oblique aerial photographs.

The monument lies in arable farmland at around 50m OD. It consists of a roughly circular enclosure defined by two concentric ditches and measuring about 40m in internal diameter. The ditches measure about 1.5m wide and are about 2m apart. A series of less clear cropmarks may indicate the presence of further structures immediately to the SW. The NW portion of the main enclosure appears to have been disturbed by the construction of the modern road.

The area proposed for scheduling comprises the remains described and an area around them within which related deposits may be expected to be found. It is irregular in shape with maximum dimensions of 110m NE-SW by 50m, as marked in red on the accompanying map extract.
