The monument consists of a settlement of presumed medieval date. The monument includes a sub-rectangular enclosure measuring 70m by 75m (N-S), 60m by 70m (E-W) internally, and bounded by a bank 6 -7m wide with an external ditch 0.6m deep. The remains of a rectangular building survive as low turf covered stone footings 0.2m high aligned E-W in the northwest corner of the enclosure and two terraced platforms are located inside the north and west banks of the enclosure. Other building platforms can be seen within the enclosure.
