The monument comprises the remains of a well-preserved medieval moated homestead. It consists of a 32m square platform, surrounded with a 9m wide moat and 8m wide embankment, the corners of which are all broken through except the eastern one. The platform interior is subdivided into earthworks that probably represent at least three building platforms. A series of ditches in the surrounding field are interconnected to the moat.
