The monument consists of the remains of a length of Offa's Dyke extending approximately 1.8 km SE from Mellington Hall Lodge to the road junction west of Lower Cwm and includes a west-east earthwork extension from the Dyke, the only such feature to be found along the Dyke's entire length.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of later prehistoric/medieval defensive organisation and settlement. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. A dyke 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.
