The monument comprises the remains of a well preserved, isolated stone-built circular hut that probably dates to the Iron Age or Romano-British period (c. 800 BC - AD 400). It is located in a sheltered position in a moderately steep sided valley on the slopes of Moel Wnion. The hut is associated with a number of possibly contemporary features including a pond, platform and leat. The monument lies within an area of intensive Iron Age / Romano-British settlement.
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. Its location within an area of intensive Iron Age / Romano-British settlement also gives it important group value as part of a wider later prehistoric domestic landscape.
The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
