Description

The monument comprises the remains of a defended enclosure, which probably dates to the Iron Age period (c. 800 BC - AD 74, the Roman conquest of Wales and which is situated on the edge of a small valley. It is sub-rectangular in plan measuring c 55m east to west by 48m north to south internally defined by a bank on the north and west sides and by a scarped slope on the valley edge to the south. Quarrying and a sunken lane have obscured the east.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of later prehistoric defensive organisation and settlement. The site forms an important element within the wider later prehistoric context and within the surrounding landscape. The site is well preserved and retains considerable archaeological potential. There is a strong probability of the presence of evidence relating to chronology, building techniques and functional detail.

The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
