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) with occupation into the subsequent Romano-British period. Situated at the west end of a low ridge in otherwise fairly level landscape it occupies a location at the head of Castle Lady Valley,

a route to one of the few safe landing places for boats on the nearby coast. The roughly circular banked enclosure measures c 68m east to west by c 62m north to south and is strengthened on the south by a single outer bank, on the west by three outer banks which curve around the sinuous entrance on this side; and on the east, the flattest approach to the site, there is an impressive series of four outer banks and ditches.

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.
