This monument includes an enclosure forming part of a larger field system situated on a gentle south facing slope on Lower Down within a dry valley leading to the valley of the River Piddle or Trent. The enclosure survives as a roughly rectangular enclosed area defined by low scarps and there are faint traces of possible building platforms in the interior. The surrounding ditches are preserved as entirely buried features.
