The monument is a prehistoric burial mound situated on the summit of a gravel ridge. It lies within and is largely defined by a relatively recent wall enclosing an area 30m in diameter; it is a maximum of 1.5m high.

The area to be scheduled extends beyond the stone wall and measures 50m in diameter, to include the mound and an area around it which features associated with its construction and use may survive, as marked in red on the attached map.

Statement of Scheduling

The monument is of national importance as a well preserved burial mound which has the potential to enhance considerably our understanding of prehistoric burial and ritual practice. The monument is in addition important because an area of prehistoric land surface will be sealed beneath the mound; this might provide important information on early agriculture.
