The monument comprises a souterrain of prehistoric date, visible as a cropmark on oblique aerial photographs.

The monument lies on fairly level ground in arable farmland at around 45m OD. It comprises a markedly curved cropmark, measuring about 10-12m in length, which represents the remains of a souterrain.

Souterrains are semi-subterranean structures generally regarded as having been used for storage in later prehistory. Souterrains are generally associated with former above-ground structures, and the remains of such structures may be expected to survive in the immediate vicinity.

The area proposed for scheduling comprises the remains described and an area around them within which related material may be expected to be found. It is circular with a diameter of 65m, as marked in red on the accompanying map extract.
