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, on the edge of a steep-sided plateau, at around 70m OD. It comprises a sub-circular ditched enclosure, measuring about 36m in internal diameter, within a ditch about 4m wide. The NE side of the enclosure is slightly flattened.

A curving linear cropmark just outside the E of the enclosure may represent the remains of a souterrain, a semi-subterranean storage building characteristic of the later prehistoric period.

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 sub-circular with a maximum diameter of 70m, as marked in red on the accompanying map extract. The modern fence that bounds the area to the W is not included in the scheduling.
