The monument is a settlement and field system of the period before the agricultural improvements. It comprises the remains of at least 8 sub-rectangular buildings, 5 stone walled enclosures and a kiln. The enclosures vary in size from 11m by 11m to 22m by 18m. The houses are in some cases multiple compartmented; the two best preserved measure 9.3m by 2.6m and 9.8m by 2.2m. The kiln is a massive stone structure, now largely infilled with stone.
The area to be scheduled measures a maximum of 290m NE to SW by 220m transversely, to include the houses, the field sytem and the kiln, and an area around them in which traces of activity associated with their use may survive, as marked in red on the attached map. The dry stone dykes which define the area to be scheduled are specifically excluded from the scheduling.
