The monument comprises the remains of an earthwork/stone-built enclosure. The date or precise nature of the enclosure is unknown, but it is likely to be later prehistoric or medieval and is located on a slight plateau at the western end of Sibwll Wood. The enclosure is roughly circular, but for the east side which is straight and where the defences do not seem as strong. The entrance is on the western, uphill side, where the defences are stronger, the bank reaching around 10ft above the ditch.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of later prehistoric defensive organisation and settlement. The site forms an important element within the wider later prehistoric context and within the surrounding landscape. The site is well preserved and retains considerable archaeological potential. There is a strong probability of the presence of evidence relating 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.
