The monument consists of the remains of a Romano-British settlement dating to the 2nd and 3rd centuries AD. Earthwork banks suggest a sub-rectangular enclosure (possibly the site of a dwelling), with field banks emanating out from this.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of Roman settlement and agricultural practices. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. A field system may be part of a larger cluster of monuments 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.
