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 is located within gardens to the west of the by-pass, east of Hope. The ditch is visible throughout, though the bank and ditch are best preserved at the south end.
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.
The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
