Description

The monument comprises the remains of a rectangular hut, which probably dates to the prehistoric/Medieval period. The stone wall foundations of the hut measure 8.5m x 5m and are set within an embanked enclosure. Also present within the enclosure is a small sunken store and an earthen storage clamp is located 21m to the east of the settlement.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric/medieval settlement. The monument forms an important element within the wider prehistoric/medieval context and the scheduled area may be expected to contain a wide range of archaeological information, including chronological detail and evidence in regard to construction techniques and agricultural methods. Rectangular huts may be part of a larger cluster of settlement 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. It is rectangular with sides measuring 90m x 60m.
