The monument comprises a standing stone of prehistoric date. It is being rescheduled to clarify the extent of the scheduled area, and to ensure that it covers the whole of the archaeologically sensitive area.

The monument lies in arable farmland at around 50m OD. It comprises a standing stone measuring about 1.3m high, 1.4m wide and about 0.5m thick. It is oriented roughly NE-SW. Standing stones such as this date to the Neolithic and Bronze Age periods and were involved with prehistoric ritual practices.

The area proposed for scheduling comprises the stone and an area around it within which related material may be expected to be found. It is circular with a diameter of 20m, as marked in red on the accompanying map extract.
