The monument comprises the well preserved remains of a hut circle that probably dates to the Iron Age or Romano-British period (c. 800 BC - AD 400) and a rectangular hut, perhaps contemporary with the hut circle or constructed during the medieval period, possibly on top of and re-using a pre-existing building.
The site has particular archaeological interest because the association of two distinct hut types suggests longevity and continuity of occupation. The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of later prehistoric domestic construction practices. The monument retains significant archaeological potential and there is a strong probability that structural evidence has survived, together with internal and external floor surfaces.
The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
