The monument consists of the remains of a deserted rural settlement, probably dating to the medieval or post-medieval period and loacted on part of the the south facing hillside of Gellidywll. There are six substantial earth platforms, varying in length from 9m to 23m. There are no visible remains of building foundations.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of medieval or post-medieval settlement organisation. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. A deserted rural settlement may be part of a larger cluster of monuments and their importance can further enhanced by their group value.
