This site consists of a series of enclosures with associated huts. The huts sometimes occur amongst a mass of stone rubble. Other features on the site are: a pile of stones at K; a rectangular setting of stones 3.5m x 1.5m at L; the foundations of a small building 2.4 m square at M; the remains of two rectangular buildings at N; and a large, multi-cellular sheepfold at P. A pair of later tracks cross the site to the S of the sheepfold, and another track runs from W to E just N of the sheepfold. A series of small hollows to the N and similar to the E of the sheepfold may denote quarrying. The site is in good condition and shows a series of land use changes from the prehistoric period to the 19th C.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric settlement.
