The monument is a setting of four stones, probably of Bronze Age date, of the kind known as a "four-poster", situated on the summit of a knoll with extensive views. The setting is about 3m square.

The area to be scheduled is a circle 60m in diameter, with one side flattened where it is bounded by the modern forestry fence (which is specifically excluded), to include the setting and an area around it in which traces of activities associated with its use are likely to survive, as marked in red on the attached map.

Statement of Scheduling

The monument is of national importance as a very well preserved and apparently undisturbed example of a prehistoric 'four-poster'. The setting and the area scheduled around it have the potential to enhance considerably our understanding of the use of such small ceremonial sites.
