The monument comprises the remains of an earthwork/stone-built enclosure. The date or precise nature of the enclosure is unknown, but it is likely to be later prehistoric or medieval. The enclosure is sub-rectangular with walls consisting of two rows of boulders about 6ft wide. It contains remains of four or possibly more round huts. There are three further huts sited against the enclosure wall and an entrance on north-west side. Additional field walls are in the vicinity.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of later prehistoric defensive organisation and settlement. The site forms an important element within the wider later prehistoric context and within the surrounding landscape. The site is well preserved and retains considerable archaeological potential. There is a strong probability of the presence of evidence relating to chronology, building techniques and functional detail.
