The monument comprises the turf-covered remains of a chapel within a burial ground, about 225m SSW of Duisker farmhouse. The monument was first scheduled in 1963, but the extent of the protected area was unclear: the present scheduling rectifies this.

This unusually small chapel measures about 3.6m from NE to SW by 2.8m transversely, within walls some 0.8m in thickness. The entrance lay in the SW wall. The burial ground is roughly circular, with a diameter of about 13m, within a drystone wall about 1.3m wide. The entrance appears to have been in the N sector. There are no identifiable tombstones, but a low stony mound immediately E of the chapel may mark the position of a grave.

The area to be scheduled includes the chapel and burial ground and an area around them within which associated remains may be expected to survive. It is circular in shape, with a diameter of 30m, as marked in red on the attached map.
