Description

A group of three huts cut back into a fairly steep slope, which are quite well preserved, one with a stretch of internal facing visible. The enclosure has embanked stone walls, and has its long axis up and down the slope, though this is less steep than at the site of the huts. The spring below the huts still runs, and was until fairly recently the water supply for the house.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of Prehistoric settlement. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. The structures themselves may be expected to contain archaeological information concerning chronology and building techniques.

The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
