A nearly square earthwork consisting of a ditch between two banks enclosing an area 42 m W - E and 39 m N - S. It is situated on a SW facing slope. The N, S and W sides are nearly ploughed out but the E side remains as a ditch 2 m deep, an inner bank nearly 1 m high and an outer bank 0.3 m high. The ditch is about 4 m wide, as are the inner and outer banks. The entrance was on the W side.
A tumulus is situated on the hilltop 160 m N of the earthwork. It is about 2 m high and 16 m diameter, but is eroding badly.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric ritual and funerary practices. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. The structure itself may be expected to contain archaeological information concerning chronology and building techniques.
