The monument comprises the remains of a earthen built round barrow, which probably dates to the Bronze Age (c. 2300 - 800 BC). Crugyn Tumulus is circular in shape on plan and has a rounded profile. It sits on a low spur in a river valley above an ancient river crossing, and is c.25m in diameter and c.1.5m high. It gives the impression of having been spread by ploughing in the past, and there is now no trace of a previously recorded 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.
