The monument comprises the remains of a hut circle and field system of the Bronze Age or Iron Age. The hut circle measures 9.0m in internal diameter within a rubble wall 2.5m wide. The entrance is in the south east. The field system lies mainly to the north but also surrounds the hut circle and consists of well defined stone clearance heaps, occasional field walls and lynchets, sometimes forming cultivation plots.

An old coach road passes close by the hut circle on the east and runs N-S. The area to be scheduled measures a maximum of 570m NNE-SSW by 510m transversely, to include the hut circle and and the field system and an area around in which traces of activity associated with their use will survive, as marked in red on the attached map.
