The monument comprises a well preserved, loosely grouped settlement that probably dates to the Iron Age or Romano-British period (c. 800 BC - AD 400). The settlement consists of at least 13 well preserved huts displaying a variety of shapes and sizes, and also some associated enclosures, yards and working areas. The huts and associated features are positioned in six separate yet interconnected groups, perhaps representing separate homesteads. Two similar settlements are located nearby, to the north.
This is an extensive, complex and complete settlement of considerable archaeological importance because of the wide range of well preserved structures and a whole system of paddocks or yards alongside the huts. 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. This site is of further archaeological significance as part of a larger ancient landscape in conjunction with the two similar settlements to the north.
The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
