The monument consists of a linear earthwork, a substantial bank and ditch forming a major boundary between two adjacent landholdings. This section of Wat's Dyke measures 0.75km with traces of a ditch visible to the west.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of early medieval defensive organisation and settlement. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. A linear earthwork may be part of a larger cluster of monuments and their importance can further enhanced by their group value.
