The monument comprises the remains of a well preserved hut circle and attached enclosure that probably dates to the Iron Age or Romano-British period (c. 800 BC - AD 400). This hut circle is likely to be the only surviving remains of a larger settlement.
The site has particular archaeological importance because it is a fortunate survival in an area which has been subject to extensive agricultural improvements resulting in the destruction of other similar huts. 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 from both the hut and the associated enclosure.
The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
