The site consists of a rectangular building with a couple of rectangular enclosures attached, and a smaller circular enclosure to the E with another vague circle of similar size but much less pronounced beside it, to the N.
It is easy to interpret this site as a farmhouse with yards and a field system attached, but if the circles are large hut circles it is surprising that they should have survived, one at least in good condition, in such close proximity to a late or post medieval farmhouse. If the house is older, it has survived surprisingly well,better than many in much more remote locations.
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 scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
