Description

The monument comprises the complete and well-preserved remains of an isolated hut circle, probably dating to the Iron Age or Romano-British period (c. 800 BC - AD 400), with a small annexe or yard.

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 importance of the site is enhanced by visible remnants of an early field system close to the hut circle, but outside the scheduled area.

The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
