The monument comprises the remains of an unusually complete hut circle settlement, which probably dates from the Iron Age or Romano British periods (c. 800 BC - AD 400). It comprises three small hut foundations, two of which appear to be joined to each other, and an associated small paddock or enclosure. Other scheduled monuments of a similar date are located in the immediate vicinity and a ring cairn, dating from the Bronze Age (c. 2300 - 800 BC), is situated only a few metres away.
