The monument comprises the remains of a well preserved enclosed hut circle settlement, which probably dates from the first millennium BC. The site comprises four huts, two of which are circular, and two rectangular which could have been ancilliary structures. All are likely to be contemporary but could represent different phases of construction.
The site has archaeological importance because of its fortunate survival in an area of agricultural improvement and from the wide range of structural features which it presents. 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.
