The monument consists of the remains of a length of Offa's Dyke extending approximately 80 metres, and forming the boundary of the houses along Wrexham Road. The dyke reaches up to 2.5m metres in height and the ditch has been infilled.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of early 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.
