The abandoned part of a medieval settlement situated upon low-lying clay on the south eastern bank of the River Cuckmere. It represents most of the original extent of the village of Arlington, which has since shifted to higher ground to the east of the parish church. The abandoned part of the settlement survives as an area of earthworks and associated buried remains, the most distinctive features of which are a roughly rectangular area interpreted as the now disused, western half of the churchyard, hollow ways, at least four building platforms and two now dry depressions thought to represent contemporary village ponds. Reuse of the monument during World War II is represented by a small circular anti-aircraft gun emplacement situated close to the south west corner of the churchyard.
