The monument comprises an enclosure and adjacent circular building, dating to the prehistoric period, and visible as cropmarks on oblique aerial photographs.

The monument lies in arable farmland, at a height of around 40m OD, and probably represents the remains of a prehistoric enclosed settlement site. The monument comprises a circular ditched enclosure, measuring approximately 30m in diameter, and a dark circular mark, probably the wooden floor of a circular house. Both features probably date to the 1st millenium BC.

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 on plan, measuring 80m in diameter, as marked in red upon the accompanying map.
