The monument comprises the remains of an enclosed settlement of multiple hut circles, which probably dates from the first millennium BC.
The site lies on a natural shelf running NNE - SSW and facing more or less NW. It consists of an enclosure, which is a long rectangle, divided into two parts, of which the S part is longer and narrower. The wider N part is almost square and contains three hut circles in three of the corners, the fourth corner being occupied by a heap of stone. This is probably derived from the wall of this N part of the enclosure on the SE, which has been cleared; it appears to be too small to cover a hut circle. It is not very recent, judging by the size of the trees growing on it.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric settlement practices. It is an important relic of the prehistoric landscape and retains significant archaeological potential. There is a strong probability of the presence of environmental and structural evidence, including preserved internal and external floor levels.
The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
