Description

The monument comprises a standing stone of prehistoric date. It is being rescheduled to clarify the extent of the scheduled area and to ensure that the archaeologically sensitive area is protected.

The stone stands in arable farmland at around 310m OD. It comprises a granite standing stone oriented NNE-SSW, measuring about 1m high, 0.7m wide and about 0.2m thick. The stone was most probably erected at a Neolithic or Bronze Age date and would have formed a focus for prehistoric ritual practices.

The area proposed for scheduling comprises the stone and an area around it within which related material may be expected to be found. It is circular with a diameter of 25m, as marked in red on the accompanying map extract.
