Description

The monument comprises the remains of a complex of structures that probably date to the Iron Age or Romano-British period (c. 800 BC - AD 400), including at least one well preserved hut-circle and two sections of linear walling. The internal diameter of the hut circle is between 7.5 and 8.0 m, with a rubble-filled double wall 1.2 m thick, of upright limestone slabs up to 0.8 m high. The 2.0 m wide entrance is on the NE. A large ash tree is growing inside the hut on the N side.

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.
