Description

Hut Circle Settlement: There is one fairly large round hut and an attached structure which may be round or sub-rectangular. The E sides of these two features seem to have been cleared in the past, but the W sides are well preserved. There is a narrow, possibly original, gap through the W wall of the round hut.

To the S is a strange, flat-topped knoll which looks as though it should be artificial, but no evidence for this could be found.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric settlement and land use. 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.
