The monument comprises an oval cairn of prehistoric date visible as a tree and stone covered mound.

The monument was first scheduled in 1973, but an inadequate area was included to protect all of the archaeological remains: the present rescheduling rectifies this.

The monument lies in arable farmland at about 85m O.D. The monument comprises a burial cairn consisting of a large stony mound set within a small area of trees. The mound measures about 32m by 27m E-W and has a maximum height of 2.5m on the west side. The summit of the mound has been levelled.

Cairns of this type are funerary monuments dating to the Neolithic and Bronze Age, and may be expected to contain material relating to their mode of construction and use.

The area proposed for scheduling comprises the remains described and an area around them within which related material may be expected to be found. It is circular, with a diameter of 60m, as marked in red on the accompanying map extract. The above ground components of a field boundary present within the S and W parts of the scheduled area are themselves excluded from the schedule.
