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. This is a small circular hillslpe enclosure, measuring 50m N-S x 60m E-W on ground that slopes to the south towards a stream. The bank measures 1.5m high with a possible entrance on the south. A shallow outer ditch is visible as an earthwork on all sides, save the east.
