From the EH record of Scheduled Monuments

The monument includes a levelled henge monument situated on the flood plain of the Salcott Creek 1km north-east of Virley church. Although no longer visible at ground level the monument survives as a circular ditch which can be clearly seen as a cropmark and on aerial photographs. The ditch is 46m in diameter with two opposed entrances, to the north-west and south-east, which measure approximately 10m in width.
