Most scheduled monuments are not occupied buildings and have no postal address or postcode of their own. In rural and coastal areas, the nearest geocodable postal address may be several miles away.
The monument includes a prehistoric field system along the eastern flank of Peninnis Head, a broad promontory on the south coast of St Mary's in the Isles of Scilly. The field system is defined by rubble banks, up to 2 metres wide and 0.5 metres high, generally turf-covered but occasional lengths incorporate continuous rows of projecting boulders and edge-set slabs up to 0.9 metres high. Where they follow the contour the banks appear as lynchets.
