The monument comprises the remains of a standing stone, which probably dates to the Bronze Age (c. 2300 - 800 BC) and is located on the boundary of the parishes of Llangatwg and Llangynidr, oriented NE-SW. The stone is a weathered limestone block measuring 1.27m wide x0.4m thick and stands to a height of 2.62m.
