The monument comprises the remains of an extensive settlement that probably dates to the Iron Age or Romano-British period (c. 800 BC - AD 400). The settlement consists of the foundations of fourteen small huts, eleven of which are circular, the remainder rectangular with rounded corners. The site may have been occupied over a long period of time, as suggested by the positions of the huts and the range of different building forms present.
This is an unusually large, complete and well-preserved settlement which has a high density of surviving structural features. 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.
