An early settlement site dating from the later prehistoric and Romano-British period (c.800BC to AD400), with nearby structures and features of later date. Two hut circles open onto a courtyard containing indications of other structures that have not survived in such good condition. To the W of the hut circles is a rectangular building, largely obscured by field clearance stone, possibly a late-medieval or post-medieval farmhouse. To the N and E are indications of further structures and an early field system, in the form of terraces and banks.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of multi-period settlement. 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 site has group value due to its proximity to other broadly contemporary sites.

The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
