The monument comprises an extensive and well-preserved hut circle settlement, probably dating to the Iron Age or Romano-British period (c. 800 BC - AD 400). The site consists of six hut circles, the foundations of round houses, set within an associated field system. Several of the hut circles display structural features including annexes and porches, suggestive of alterations associated with long term use or re-occupation. Close by is a rectangular long hut of possible medieval date, adding further value to the site.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric domestic life and social organisation. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of structural evidence and associated archaeological features and deposits, including surviving internal and external floor levels.
The scheduled areas comprise the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
