The monument comprises the remains of an earthwork enclosure. The date or precise nature of the enclosure is unknown. The enclosure consisting of a single bank is sub rectangular and measures c 94m north west to south east by c 54m across. The bank appears to have been constructed by lowering and levelling the interior and its unusual form has led to suggestions it may be a ritual enclosure of the Neolithic/early Bronze Age (2900-2100 BC).
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric settlement and ritual practices. The site forms an important element within the wider prehistoric context and within the surrounding landscape. The site is well preserved and retains considerable archaeological potential.
