The monument comprises the remains of a earthen built round barrow, which probably date to the Bronze Age (c. 2300 - 800 BC) and is situated on sloping ground to the west of Cae-betin wood. The barrow is circular in shape on plan and has a rounded profile, measuring 20m in diameter and standing to a height of 1.7m above the surrounding ground. It has a smooth and undamaged profile. Originally one of a pair.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric burial and ritual practices. The features are an important relic of a prehistoric funerary and ritual landscape and retain significant archaeological potential. There is a strong probability of the presence of both intact ritual and burial deposits, together with environmental and structural evidence. Barrows may be part of a larger cluster of monuments and their importance can further enhanced by their group value. The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
