The monument consists of the remains of a house. The Archdeacon of Cardigan’s ground is a paddock on the north side of the close alongside the lane to Porth Boning and the Close Wall. The paddock has a raised platform at its western end and a portion of one of the buildings forms part of one of the boundary walls. The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of settlement and domestic activity. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. The structure itself may be expected to contain archaeological information concerning chronology and building techniques. A house 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.
