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. Great Cloddiau Camp comprises a sub-rectangular enclosure defined by scarped slope with lengths of ditch on NW, W and S sides. The maximum height of the scarp slope is c. 2.5m. The banks are followed by a field boundary and are wooded on S, E and W sides. The interior is level and measures 150m by 140m.

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.
