The monument comprises two standing stones of prehistoric date. It is being rescheduled in order to clarify the extent of the scheduled area and to ensure that the archaeologically most sensitive area is covered.

The stones stand in arable farmland at around 40m OD. They are set close together, aligned roughly NE-SW. The E stone measures about 1m high, 0.9m wide and about 0.4m thick. The W stone measures about 1.2m high, 1m wide and about 0.7m thick. Standing stones such as this date to the Neolithic and Bronze Age periods and were the focus for prehistoric ritual practices.

The area proposed for scheduling comprises the stones and an area around them within which related material may be expected to be found. It is circular with a diameter of 25m, as marked in red on the accompanying map extract.
