Description

The hut and enclosure are clearly visible and as described, although overgrown and situated within a small area of woodland. The enclosure measures some 9 m by 6 m, but the E wall is not clearly visible, and the S wall continues E towards the hut. Other slight structural remains may lie S of the enclosure. Another wall runs a short distance S from the W side of the hut.

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 structures themselves 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.
