The monument comprises the remains of a stone circle of Neolithic or Bronze Age date represented by six standing stones.

The monument stands on a locally high summit at around 135m OD. It comprises four stones on the circumference of a stone circle with a diameter of around 9m, each up to 2m in length. One of these stones bears a single visible cup-mark. Two outlying stones stand close to

the E. One of these, at 2.5m high, is the tallest of the group. The monument represents a ritual site of Neolithic or Bronze Age date.

The area to be scheduled encompasses the visible features and an area around them in which traces of associated activity may be expected to survive. It is circular with a diameter of 40m as marked in red on
