The monument comprises the remains of an isolated hut circle with an adjoining enclosure or yard. The site probably dates to the Iron Age or Romano-British period (c. 800 BC - AD 400). The hut circle is of massive orthostatic construction and in an impressive 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 archaeological importance of the site is enhanced by indications of an early field system in the vicinity of the hut, but outside the scheduled area.
The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
