The monument comprises the remains of an isolated hut circle that probably dates to the Iron Age or Romano-British period (c. 800 BC - AD 400); a rectangular enclosure approximately 18m to the W and other associated walls, all probably of a later date than the hut circle.
The hut circle was excavated in about 1930, when it was found to be approximately 6.4-6.7m in diameter with walls about 1.8m thick. The hut floor was found to be partially sunk into the limestone outcrop which forms its walls on the N and E sides; the entrance was probably on the S side. Across the N side was a raised floor of clay and stones approximately 3.4m long and 1.2m wide from the hut wall. A gritstone mortar was found in situ in the raised floor and there was a hearth on the E side of the entrance.
About 18m to the W of the hut are the remains of a rectangular enclosure, measuring some 9m by 6m, but the E wall is not clearly visible, and the S wall continues E towards the hut. Its walls, 1.2m thick, are edged with two rows of large stones, many still upright. Another wall runs a short distance S from the W side of the hut and other slight structural remains may lie S of the enclosure.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of later prehistoric domestic construction practices. The monument retains significant archaeological potential and there is a strong probability that structural evidence has survived, together with internal and external floor surfaces.
The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
