The monument comprises the remains of two sub-rectangular earthen building platforms, which probably date to the prehistoric/Medieval period. The platforms are located in the broad roadside verge immediately to the north of St Mary’s Churchyard in Wiston.

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. House platforms 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.
