A defended low hillock is defined by traces of internal scarping on the N, berming on the N, S and E, and counterscarping on the S and W. The enclosed area measures about 100m (N-S) by 75m. The scarp edge which defines the interior rises to a maximum of about 4m above the surrounding slope.
The N end berm has been turned over by grazing horses.
