The monument is a multi-period site comprising a hut circle settlement consisting of two circular huts that probably date to the Iron Age or Romano-British period (c. 800 BC - AD 400) and the stone foundations of two rectangular huts of medieval or post-medieval date. Also present are an associated enclosure and the remnants of an early field system. The huts are all well preserved and practically complete with surface remains standing to over 0.5m in height.
The site has considerable archaeological value because of the diverse range of structural remains and because of the possible continuity of settlement in the area. The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of later prehistoric and perhaps medieval 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.
