Description

The monument comprises a standing stone of prehistoric date. The stone itself is already scheduled, and this proposal expands the protected area to include the area around the stone.

The stone stands in arable farmland at around 100m OD. It comprises a small, unsculptured standing stone some 0.9m high. Standing stones such as this are characteristic ritual monuments of the Neolithic and Bronze Age periods.

The area to be scheduled encompasses the stone and an area around it in which traces of associated activity may be expected to survive. It is circular with a diameter of 20m as marked in red on the accompanying map.
