The monument comprises the remains of a compact enclosed settlement which probably dates from the first millennium BC. The settlement includes the foundations of at least five circular huts set within a terraced rectangular enclosure. Also present are some associated contemporary field walls and a later rectangular hut. The varying state of preservation of the huts could indicate that they are not necessarily contemporary and that earlier huts may have been robbed to build their successors, suggesting continuity of occupation. Other settlements of a similar period have been identified in the vicinity.
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.
