Description

The monument comprises the remains of an enclosed settlement of multiple hut circles, which probably dates from the first millennium BC. There are four round huts linked and partially enclosed by stretches of walling. Two entrances are clear, marked by orthostats, one to one of the huts and one to the enclosure itself.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric 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.
