The monument comprises the remains of a well preserved compact enclosed settlement or individual farmstead of the Iron Age or Romano-British period and a later medieval or post-medieval platform hut and associated yard. The hut settlement comprises two round huts set within an enclosing bank. There is also evidence for associated field systems in the vicinity.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric and later settlement practices. It is an important relic of the prehistoric landscape, also showing continuity of use or re-use of the site, 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.
