The monument comprises two standing stones of prehistoric date. The monument was first scheduled in 1930 and rescheduled in 1965. It is being rescheduled yet again in order to clarify the extent of the scheduled area.

The monument lies in mixed woodland at about 70m OD. It comprises two standing stones, aligned N-S and set about 3m apart. The N stone is about 2.1m high, and the S stone is approximately 1.6m high. The monument relates to ritual activity of Neolithic or Bronze Age date.

The area proposed for scheduling comprises the remains described and an area around them within which related material may be expected to be found. It is a truncated circle on plan with a maximum diameter of 30m, bounded by the edge of a road to the SW, as marked in red on the accompanying map extract. Above-ground elements of the modern boundary fence are excluded from the scheduling.
