The monument comprises the remains of an earthwork/stone-built enclosure. The date or precise nature of the enclosure is unknown, but it is likely to be later prehistoric or medieval. The enclosure is roughly circular with defences consisting of a single rampart and external ditch on all but the east side, where the slope falls away to a sheer drop making defences unnecessary. The rampart measures c. 0.8m high on inside and the ditch c. 1.5m deep. Entrances are on the west and south-east and possibly also on the north-east side.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of later prehistoric defensive organisation and settlement. The site forms an important element within the wider later prehistoric context and within the surrounding landscape. The site is well preserved and retains considerable archaeological potential. There is a strong probability of the presence of evidence relating to chronology, building techniques and functional detail. The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
