Description

This site consists of a single round hut standing within a sub-rectangular enclosure. The remains are quite well preserved. The field system adjoins the site on the SW and is particularly well preserved in a belt of woodland occupying a steep slope. Field boundaries consist mostly of stone walls but include banks, and there are mounds of field clearance stones.

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.
