The monument comprises a small group of round huts with an associated paddock, dating from the Iron Age or Romano-British period (c. 800 BC - AD 400). The site includes at least 5 undisturbed hut circles with additional huts now lying beneath more recent sheepfolds. The enclosure wall links two areas of outcropping rock forming a paddock area which includes all but one of the round huts.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric domestic life and social organisation. The site is of particular value as a relatively complete and undisturbed example of a small, scattered hut circle settlement. It has added interest because of the variety of related types of structure of other periods within the same area. The monument retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of structural evidence and associated archaeological features and deposits.
The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
