The monument comprises the well-preserved remains of an unenclosed nucleated hut circle settlement comprising five stone walled round huts. The monument probably dates to the Iron Age or Romano-British period (c. 800 BC - AD 400).
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 significance of the site is also enhanced by the presence of other contemporary settlements within the vicinity.
The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
