The monument comprises an impressive standing stone, probably dating to the Bronze Age (c.2300 BC - 800 BC). It is a massive block of stone, standing 2.2m in height and measuring 1.2m in thickness and 1.1m in width. The standing stone leans towards the W and a small boggy pool surrounds its base. It is situated on a slight terrace.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric ritual practices. The monument retains significant archaeological potential with a strong probability of associated archaeological features and deposits and forms an important element in the wider prehistoric funerary and ritual landscape. Its importance is further enhanced by its proximity to the stone row (or possible stone circle) situated about 400m to the ENE (RD224).
