The monument comprises the remains of an earthwork/stone-built enclosure. The date or precise nature of the enclosure is unknown, but it is likely to be later prehistoric or medieval. Coed Trefraith comprises a univallate earthwork enclosure of about 0.5 acres. There are traces of digging, possibly for limestone, in the interior. The enclosure may possibly be part of an associated field system in the wood. It is potentially interesting as a rare example in the area of a strictly non-defensive enclosure.
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.
