The monument comprises the remains of a single, isolated, large hut circle that probably dates to the Iron Age or Romano-British period (c. 800 BC - AD 400). The hut is of orthostatic construction and in a good state of preservation.
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 the presence of similar, but less well preserved sites of the same period in this area.
The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
