The monument comprises a standing stone of prehistoric date.

The monument stands in an arable field at around 90m OD in a fairly level but relatively low-lying position. The stone is a roughly

oblong slab of schist with its longer axis set approximately E-W. It stands up to 1.3m high.

The stone is likely to represent a ritual monument of Neolithic or Bronze Age date though it may have retained a ritual significance in later periods.

The area to be scheduled encompasses the stone and an area around it

in which buried deposits relating to its original emplacement and subsequent use may be expected to survive. It is circular with a diameter of 10m as marked in red on the accompanying map.
