The monument comprises the foundations of a round hut probably dating to the Bronze Age or Iron Age (c.2300 BC - AD 74).
A round hut of unusual design, situated in a small enclosure adjacent to St Celynin's church. The hut has an internal diameter of 7.5m, then a raised area running all round the hut 2m wide, then a wall faced inside and out, 1m wide. There is an entrance 1.5m wide on the E. In 1988, the occupier of the site living in the nearby farm claimed it to be the foundations of a cock fighting pit. The foundations of a 19th century public house lie close by.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric domestic life and social organisation. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of structural evidence and associated archaeological features and deposits.
The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
