A 'concentric circle' site with another small structure clearly visible within the outer wall as well as the circular 'house', although the second small circle is not clear. The S part of the outer wall forms the base of a field wall, but it is quite well preserved on the N.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric settlement. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. The structures themselves may be expected to contain archaeological information concerning chronology and building techniques.

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