The monument comprises the remains of a well-preserved medieval moated homestead. It comprises a rectangular moated site, c.40m NE-SW x 30m internally. It is defined on N, W, S sides by a moat, with a natural scarp on the 4th side. The mound has been reduced by ploughing, and is clearly overlain by ridge and furrow, but it is still in reasonable condition. An artificial scarp to the north may be associated with the site, as a possible bridge abutment.
