The monument comprises the well-preserved remains of a compact settlement that probably dates to the Iron Age or Romano-British period (c. 800 BC - AD 400). The settlement consists of four stone footed round huts of similar forms and dimensions lying together in a line.
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; the site is partially covered in peat which should have resulted in good preservation and there is a strong probability that structural evidence has survived, together with internal and external floor surfaces. The archaeological potential of the site is enhanced by its location within an area which is known to contain other, probably contemporary settlement sites.
The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
