The nearest postcode is an aid to location, and does not necessarily reflect the actual address of the monument. 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.


A linear stone wall and an extensive exposure of bedrock and loose stones lie below the high water mark. The linear composed of earthfast stones and slabs is probably the core element of a prehistoric boundary wall. It runs for 50m north-east to south-west and is up to 1.5m wide. Two cains or hut circles have been identified within the bedrock exposure but they were not identifed in March 1997.
