The monument comprises the remains of a church and churchyard probably dating to the medieval period.
Churchyard: area of about 1.5 acres bounded on west and north-west by a wall (now a field wall) and on north-east, east and south by a low bank c. 7m broad x 0.60m high, with a gap in the south-east corner. On the south side, on the line of the bank and 3m apart, are two stones 1.8m high. (At the roadside, near the gate of the field is the base of a cross.)
Church: bank c. 30m x 7.30m, 0.30-0.60m high in south half of the churchyard. Ground falls away to the north. Projection to the north at the east end makes the mound rather L-shaped.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of medieval ecclesiastical organisation. The monument forms an important element within the wider medieval context and the structure itself may be expected to contain archaeological information in regard to chronology, building techniques and functional detail.
The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
