The monument is a stone circle of the later Neolithic or Bronze Age situated at the SW end of Strelitz Wood.

The circle consists of three very large fallen stones, one of which has been split in two by a charge placed in a drilled hole. One of the stones sits on the boundary between the plantation and the field to the SW.

The area to be scheduled, which includes the stones and an area around them within which traces of activity associated with their use will be found, is a circle 30m in diameter, as marked in red on the attached map.
