Description

The monument comprises a standing stone of Later Neolithic or Bronze Age date.

The stone stands slightly below the crest of a low ridge at around 70m OD. It stands some 2.35m high with a maximum circumference of 1.85m. The stone fell some years ago and was re-erected revealing a stone hole some 0.5m deep and 1.2m in diameter.

Monuments of this kind were associated with prehistoric ritual practice and may be expected to have been focal points for human activity for a considerable period after their initial construction.

The area to be scheduled encompasses the standing 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.
