Description

There are two hut circles within the enclosure, although the walls are just low grassy banks; other irregularities may be other features or possibly a third hut. A length of field wall 55 m long is included in the scheduled area. It runs from the enclosure wall in a NE direction, and is probably of the same date as the enclosed settlement, although a more recent field wall has been constructed on top of the earlier wall.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric settlement. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. The structures themselves may be expected to contain archaeological information concerning chronology and building techniques.

The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
