Description

The site is a single, large, substantially built hut circle of the Romano-British period.

This is an unusually large, well preserved and substantially built round hut. Partial excavation has proved the site to be archaeologically rich with well preserved structural features and undisturbed internal floor levels. Archaeological finds have shown the site to be of Romano-British date and suggest that it could have been of high status. Much of the hut remains untouched by excavation giving the site a high potential for research as well as being a good example of its type.

The scheduled area consists of a circle of 28m diameter, centred on the hut.
