The monument comprises a small unenclosed hut circle settlement of the Iron Age or Romano-British period (c. 800 BC - AD 400). The site consists of four well preserved and possibly contemporary hut circles, which are the foundations of round houses.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric domestic life and social organisation. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of structural evidence and associated archaeological features and deposits, including surviving internal and external floor levels.

The scheduled areas comprise the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
