An east-west aligned cross dyke constructed across a chalk ridge which forms part of the Sussex Downs. The 40 metre long earthwork consists of a ditch up to 8 metres wide and 0.8 metres deep flanked to the north by a bank up to 6 metres wide and 0.4 metres high. To the east, the earthworks gradually fade out on the gently sloping ground. The cross dyke originally continued for a further 70 metres across the ridge to the west of the monument, but the earthworks here have been levelled and significantly disturbed by modern ploughing. Scheduled.
