The monument comprises the remains of an earthwork/stone-built enclosure. The date or precise nature of the enclosure is unknown, but it is likely to be later prehistoric or medieval. Narberth Mountain Enclosure is a hillslope enclosure with a single bank and ditch. It is circular and measures around 55m in diameter. Part of the northern half has been ploughed out. The entrance was probably originally on the eastern side.

The site forms an important element within the wider later prehistoric context and within the surrounding landscape. The site is well preserved and retains considerable archaeological potential. There is a strong probability of the presence of evidence relating to chronology, building techniques and functional detail. The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
