The monument consists of two mounds, an artificial elevation of earth or stones. The mounds are located on a little peninsula jetting out into the Eastern Cleddan which becomes an island at high tide. The mounds are about 8ft high and measure 35ft across the top.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of construction techniques. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. A mound may be part of a larger cluster of monuments and their importance can further enhanced by their group value. The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
