The monument comprises the well preserved remains of a single isolated hut circle that probably dates to the Iron Age or Romano-British period (c. 800 BC - AD 400).
Also present is a small rectangular structure, either an animal pen or ancillary building, and some traces of an early field system.
The site is important as a fine example of a single hut, further enhanced by the presence of the secondary building and remnants of the early field system. 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.
