The monument comprises a standing stone of Later Neolithic or Bronze Age date. It is already scheduled, but the area of the original scheduling is inadequate.

The stone stands in an arable field on sloping ground at around 170m OD. It stands some 2.1m high and measures approximately 3m around the base. The base of the stone is markedly narrower than the top and several packing stones are clearly visible, suggesting that ploughing has removed soil from around the base. There is a tradition that the stone formerly formed part of a stone circle but there is no indication of other stones in the field.

The area to be scheduled encompasses the stone and an area around it in which traces of associated ritual activity may be expected to survive. It is circular with a diameter of 20m as marked in red on the accompanying map.
