The monument comprises the remains of two earthen built round barrows, which probably date to the Bronze Age (c. 2300 - 800 BC). The first barrow is located on the top of a west facing slope and measures 60ft in diameter and 3ft high. It is regular in shape despite having been reduced by ploughing but there is no sign of a ditch. The second barrow lies 30yds to the south-east and measures 60ft in diameter and 3ft high. This has also been ploughed and shows no sign of a ditch.

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.
