The monument comprises the remains of earthworks, platforms and building footings, representing a deserted village, of medieval date. The village of Linney was recorded in 1324 and 1480; there were 13 bond tenants of the Earl of Pembroke. By the 18th century the village had disappeared. The site lies on the northern slope of a hill overlooking Castle Lady Valley. A series of around ten house platforms show up as sub-rectangular terraces or hollows, each measuring c. 10m east to west and 8m north to south. Other earthworks suggest holloways or roadways running along the southern and eastern boundaries, the southern boundary is an east to west fieldbank.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of medieval settlement. The monument forms an important element within the wider medieval context and the scheduled area may be expected to contain a wide range of archaeological information, including chronological detail and evidence in regard to construction techniques and agricultural methods.

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