A hut-circle settlement probably dating to the Iron Age or Romano-British period (c.800BC to AD400). It lies beside a small stream in a marshy valley, just above the floodplain of the Afon Rhythallt. There are at least seven circular stone-walled huts, measuring from 3m to 9m in diameter, some linked by low stony banks, set in a compact group around a central 'courtyard' area. To the west are three circular stony platforms, possibly the remains of other huts.
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.
