Description

Semi-circular bank and ditch with a simple causewayed entrance. Situated on low ground sloping gently to east. Just below a crest. Probably part of a circular earthwork, the rest having been destroyed.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric settlement and defence. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. The structure itself may be expected to contain archaeological information concerning chronology and building techniques.

The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
