The monument comprises a stone circle of prehistoric date, visible as a series of upstanding stones. The monument was first scheduled in 1929 and rescheduled in 1964. It is being rescheduled in order to clarify the extent of the scheduled area.

The monument lies in an area of rough grassland at around 110m OD. It comprises a setting of four upright stones, set on a slight knoll with a diameter of about 6m. The four stones measure about 2.4m, 1.6m, 1.5m and 1.2m in height respectively. Stone settings of this type are characteristic of the Later Neolithic period. The knoll on which the stones are set was partially excavated in 1964 and was found to contain evidence of cremation burials.

Some 12m to the SE of the centre of the stone circle is a large cup-marked stone. Cup-marks are decorative circular depressions carved into standing stones, outcrops of bedrock and boulders, and are sometimes found arranged in patterns with other motifs. They date to the Neolithic and Bronze Age periods.

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 40m, and is bounded by a farm track to the WSW, as marked in red on the accompanying map extract.
