These earthworks stand on a spur of land. There are two circular stone-walled enclosures which surround at least sixteen hut circles. To the west is a smaller enclosure which surrounds two several hut circles. The site was excavated in 1861 and a glass arm ring was found. These remains are probably of Iron Age date, though occupation probably continued into the Roman period. This is a Scheduled Monument protected by law.
