The monument comprises the remains of a single, isolated hut circle, probably dating to the Iron Age or Romano-British period (c. 800 BC - AD 400), with two associated paddocks or enclosures. This is a complete and well preserved hut which has been constructed in an unusual manner employing vertically set slab pillars for the outside wall-face. There is evidence for later re-use in the form of an inserted structure or second hut.
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.
