Description

The monument consists of a cup and ring marked stone, probably of Bronze Age date. A large group of cup marks occur on a wedge-shaped stone. This stone, 1.1m thick at the top and 0.15m at the bottom, and measuring 1.9m by 2.7m across, was discovered during construction work and subsequently placed at the edge of a farm steading.

On its upper surface there are at least 56 cup-marks, ranging from 5cm to 19cm in diameter. Many have a 'tail' between the cup and ring. The area to be scheduled measures 6m E to W by 7m transversely, to include the stone and a small area around it, as marked in red on the accompanying map.
