The monument comprises the remains of an embanked enclosure containing the remains of a rectangular building, which probably dates to the medieval period. The site is situated on level ground on the east side of a valley close to a stream. A bank and ditch measuring c. 55m by 45m, enclose the north, east and south sides with evidence for a rectilinear building in the north-east corner. The north-western side of the enclosure has been removed through past quarrying.
