The monument comprises the remains of two rectangular huts, which probably date to the prehistoric/Medieval period. The huts are set within an embanked, irregularly shaped enclosure and appear to date to different phases, one lying on top of the other. They survive as low earth and stone foundations walls set on earth platforms.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric/medieval settlement. The monument forms an important element within the wider prehistoric/medieval context and the scheduled area may be expected to contain a wide range of archaeological information, including chronological detail and evidence in regard to construction techniques and agricultural methods. Rectangular huts may be part of a larger cluster of settlement and their importance can further enhanced by their group value. The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive. It is a square with sides 100m long.
