Description

The monument consists of the remains of a deserted rural settlement, probably dating to the medieval or post-medieval period and includes three house platforms set at ninety degrees to the contours of a steep east facing slope. The platforms vary in size from 9m x 3m to 21m x 5m. Two of the platforms have yards or enclosures marked by low banks on their downslope side and a long lynchet runs past the group. Also present within the scheduled area is a mound, probably a contemporary midden.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of medieval or post-medieval settlement organisation. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. A deserted rural settlement may be part of a larger cluster of monuments and their importance can further enhanced by their group value.

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