An earthwork enclosure set on south-west facing slopes. It appears to be a later Prehistoric type settlement enclosure, although this is not proven.
A rampart and ditch enclose a roughly pentagonal area, about 41m north-south by 45m, with a downslope west facing entrance. There are traces of an outer, counterscarp bank on the south and east.
The earthworks are best preserved on the eastern side.
