The monument comprises a complex souterrain situated inside a fenced enclosure in agricultural land.

The souterrain is visible on the surface as an entrance surrounded by stone slabs. Descent through the entrance leads to a chamber which is about 15m long and runs in a curve from the entrance at the SE toward the N. There are indications of a second chamber just within the entrance and this appears to have run some way to the SW. It is likely that the souterrain was associated with a later prehistoric settlement, no traces on which survive on the ground surface.

The area to be scheduled measures 50m NNW-SSE by 40m WSW-ENE, to include the remains of the souterrain, its side chamber and an area around in which traces of deposits associated with the construction and use of the souterrain may survive, as shown in red on the attached map extract.
