The monument comprises the remains of a well preserved compact hut circle settlement that probably dates to the Iron Age or Romano-British period (c. 800 BC - AD 400). The site consists of two stone-built circular huts and an associated oval enclosure or yard.

A variety of structural elements survive.

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.
