The monument comprises a group of four standing stones of prehistoric date, visible as an upstanding monument.

The monument lies in rough pasture and heather at about 320m O.D. The monument comprises a 'four poster' arrangement formed by a rectangle of four upright stones measuring c. 4.2m NNE-SSW by 3.0m overall. When visited for the purposes of scheduling one of the stones was invisible under the heather.

The largest stone in the W probably stood to a height of 1.5m but is now tilted outwards and is almost prostrate, as is the N stone. The S stone, only slightly tilted, is 0.8m high, and the E stone just protrudes through the turf. The S and E stones face the W and N stones respectively. In between the E and N stones a small boulder protrudes through the turf.

The monument probably relates to ritual activity of Bronze Age date.

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 in shape, measuring 40m in diameter as marked in red on the accompanying map extract.
