This is a site which one of a series along the old pack horse route which passes Bryn Cader Faner. It consists of a single hut circle with some associated walling, and a group of small cairns which probably represent field clearance, perhaps associated with the little settlement. The hut and walling is on a slope facing SE, the ground drier than the area in which the cairns are scattered.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric settlement. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. The structures themselves may be expected to contain archaeological information concerning chronology and building techniques.
The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
