The monument comprises the remains of four earthen built round barrows, which probably date to the Bronze Age (c. 2300 - 800 BC). The southernmost barrow measures c 21m in diameter by c 3m high, the southern c 21m in diameter by c 3m high, the northern has an unknown diameter and a maximum height of 2.5m where it survives under a hedgebank, and the northernmost is c 20mm in diameter and c 0.2m high.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric burial and ritual practices. The features are an important relic of a prehistoric funerary and ritual landscape and retain significant archaeological potential. There is a strong probability of the presence of both intact ritual and burial deposits, together with environmental and structural evidence. Barrows 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.
