Description

The monument comprises a standing stone located on an S-facing hillslope 700m ESE of Caddam and originally scheduled in 1935. As only the stone appears to be scheduled, it is being rescheduled to extend protection to the area immediately around it, which may contain associated remains.

The standing stone is 1.6m high by 0.7m by 0.8m, tapering to a pointed top and leaning northwards. However, records indicate that this could be all that remains of a stone circle described as comprising at least 6 stones in the late 19th century. The monument relates to ritual activity of Neolithic or Bronze Age date.

The area to be scheduled is a circle measuring 10m in diameter centred on the standing stone, and including an area around it in which traces of activities associated with the erection and use of the stone may survive, as shown in red on the accompanying map extract.
