The monument comprises the remains of a large prehistoric round barrow, probably dating to the Bronze Age (c.2300 BC - 800 BC). The grass-covered barrow is situated in improved pasture and is circular on plan, measuring about 20m in diameter and up to 1.5m in height.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric burial rites, social organisation and the environment. The feature is an important relic of a prehistoric funerary and ritual landscape and retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of both structural evidence and the presence of intact burial or ritual deposits.
The area scheduled comprises the remains described and an area around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive. It is circular and measures 30m in diameter.
