The monument comprises the well-preserved remains of a moated site of probable early medieval date. It is situated within farmland at Dyffryn in the Vale of Glamorgan. The site comprises a central platform that is square on plan and measures c. 35m in length within a well-defined and distinct moat.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of early medieval defensive organisation. The monument forms an important element within the wider medieval context and the structure itself may be expected to contain archaeological information in regard to chronology, building techniques and functional detail.

The area to be scheduled comprises the remains described and an area around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive, as shown in red on the attached map.
