The monument comprises two hut circles, the foundations of round houses, probably dating to the prehistoric or Romano-British period, with traces of early field or paddock walling nearby. It is possible that one could have been built from the remains of the other, demonstrating succession and suggesting long continuity of use of this now remote upland site. The site appears undisturbed.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric domestic life and social organisation. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of structural evidence and associated archaeological features and deposits, including surviving internal and external floor levels.
The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive, it is a rectangle, 20m NW to SE and 15m SW to NE, centred on the huts.
