The monument comprises the remains of an unusually large hut circle that probably dates to the Iron Age or Romano-British period (c. 800 BC - AD 400). It measures almost 7m in internal diameter and the substantial bank suggests that the hut walls survive particularly well beneath the turf cover. The interior appears undisturbed. Traces of an associated enclosure also survive.
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. Hut circles are relatively scarce in this area, therefore adding to the significance of the monument.
The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
