Scheduled as a henge, the enclosure measures about 150 metres by 160 metres and comprises a C-shaped ditch with a broad internal bank. Within the circuit of the bank is another ditch. Both ditches and bank featre a 30 metre wide entrance or causeway to the north east. Two sections of a further external bank have also been noted. Within the interior of the enclosure are cropmark traces of a small three-sided enclosure circa 30 metres square, its open side facing the entrance to the henge.
