The monument comprises a burial cairn of prehistoric date, visible as a prominent tree-ringed mound.

The monument lies in arable farmland at around 500m OD. The cairn measures up to 24m in diameter and about 1.6m in height with a relatively level summit. There is a plantation bank around the base of the cairn which has been planted with trees, although the mound itself is largely open.

The monument is characteristic of Neolithic and Bronze Age burial mounds, and it may be expected to contain the remains of burials and related deposits.

The area proposed for scheduling comprises the mound and an area around it within which related material may be expected to be found. It is circular with a diameter of 45m, as marked in red on the accompanying map extract.
