The monument comprises a standing stone of Neolithic or Bronze Age

date which may represent the remains of a stone circle.

The monument stands at around 220m OD SE of Stonefield Farm. The standing stone stands some 2.5m high and measures approximately 5m around its base. Early reports suggest that it formed part of a stone circle from which the other stones were removed in the nineteenth century. The monument represents a ritual site of Neolithic or Bronze Age date.

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

in which traces of associated activity may be expected to survive. It

is circular with a diameter of 20m as marked in red on the

accompanying map.
