The walling, now heavily turf-covered, is very faint, being up to 2m wide and now less than 0.3m high. The enclosure appears to have been approx ovoid in shape, although the se quadrant is missing, having been effaced by peat cutting. It has a w to e diameter of 65m across the surviving section. Erosion created by a footpath, which traverses the enclosure from w to e has exposed the walling on the eastern part (rchm).
