The monument comprises the remains of a group of hut circles that probably date to the Iron Age or Romano-British period (c. 800 BC - AD 400). The site consists of two pasture fields divided by a wall, the western one bounded by the Afon Crigyll and the eastern by another wall. Along the edge of the west field, above the river, is some outcropping rock, the line of which is continued southwards by an intermittent row of boulders, singly and in groups, possibly the remains of a boundary wall. In the northern part of the east field, and just outside it to the south, are clear remains of hut circles. There are also some ploughed-over circles in the east field just to the NW of the better-preserved ones. Most of the area, particularly the east field, shows undulations suggestive of enclosures of various shapes and sizes, although there are no other clear features.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of later prehistoric domestic construction practices. The monument retains significant archaeological potential and there is a strong probability that structural evidence has survived, together with internal and external floor surfaces.
The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
