Only one section of the bank of the monument was visible, as over the years various farm buildings had been erected, thus interfering with the structure. The area to be affected by the Longford Road Improvement Scheme lies 10m to the north of the monument. This area was thoroughly investigated to ascertain if any trace of an enclosing ditch could be detected. No archaeological material or structures were found to be present.
