The monument is a scheduled stone circle of the later Neolithic or Bronze Age situated in a broad-leaf wood immediately NW of a


The circle comprises four stones, originally in a four-post setting,

but now only one stone still stands. The setting is located centrally

on a platform about 26m in diameter and 0.5m high.

The area of the present scheduling is not known since no map

accompanies the scheduling papers. The area to be scheduled includes

the stone circle, the platform and an area around it within which

traces of activity associated with their use may be found. The area

is irregular, measures 50m NW-SE by 40m transversely, bounded on the

SE by the cemetery wall (which is specifically excluded from the scheduling) and on the N and NE by the modern road, as marked in red

on the attached map.
