The monument comprises the remains of a well-preserved medieval moated homestead, lying on fairly low land. The moat is complete except for part of the eastern side and is of an average depth of 1.5m. It is waterfilled in the north west corner and elsewhere it is marshy. There is a causeway on the north side with traces of masonry and within the enclosure are masonry foundations of a building measuring 5 x 6.5m with a small rectangular addition of 3m square. There is a modern tip of hardcore along the western edge of moat. The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of medieval settlement. The monument is well preserved and is an important relic of the medieval landscape. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of intact archaeological deposits and structural evidence. The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
