The monument comprises the remains of a well-preserved medieval moated homestead. It consists of a roughly rectangular platform measuring 26m N/S by 32m E/W surrounded by a moat. The interior is slightly dished and slopes gently to the N. The ditch is up to 3m wide and 1.7m deep, and is flat bottomed and boggy in places, with small streams running N from the moat on the W and E sides. On the W side, towards the S end, is a 5m wide causeway leading across the moat and into the interior.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of medieval settlement. The monument is well preserved and is an important relic of the medieval landscape. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of intact archaeological deposits and structural evidence.

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