The monument comprises a stone circle of prehistoric date, visible as a series of upstanding stones. The monument was first scheduled in 1930, and rescheduled in 1963, but an inadequate area was included to protect all of the archaeological remains. The present rescheduling rectifies this.

The monument lies in the garden of a modern house at about 115m OD. It comprises a circle of seven stones, which vary in height from about 0.4m to about 1.8m. The circle has a diameter of about 8m. Stone settings of this type are characteristic of the Neolithic period.

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 sub-circular with a maximum diameter of 30m, and is bounded by a road to the SSW, as marked in red on the accompanying map extract. The scheduling excludes the above-ground elements and stone foundation of the modern shed to the N of the stones, and all elements of the septic tank and inspection chamber to the SW of the stones.
