The monument comprises the remains of a hut circle that probably dates to the Iron Age or Romano-British period (c. 800 BC - AD 400). The hut circle constructed in a sheltered position at the bottom of a deep natural shake hole. It has an internal diameter of 3.2m, is bounded by well constructed coursed stone walls 0.6m wide and standing up to 0.6m in height. The hut has a well defined west facing entrance marked by two large boulders.
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.
