The monument comprises the well preserved remains of a compact, unenclosed settlement consisting of a group of at least five, possibly seven round huts with a contemporary field system marked by lengths of curvilinear walls. 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 site also has potential for surviving environmental evidence.

The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
