The monument comprises the remains of a rectangular hut, which probably dates to the Prehistoric or Medieval period and is located next to a small stream. The hut is defined by low stony banks and measures 11 x 6m, with a single entrance facing the stream. On the other side is a rounded enclosure measuring 19 x 21m and defined by a low broad bank.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric/medieval settlement. The monument forms an important element within the wider prehistoric/medieval context and the scheduled area may be expected to contain a wide range of archaeological information, including chronological detail and evidence in regard to construction techniques and agricultural methods. Rectangular huts may be part of a larger cluster of settlement and their importance can further enhanced by their group value.
The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
