Description

The monument comprises a standing stone, probably dating to the Bronze Age (c.2300 BC - 800 BC). It is a large block of stone, standing 1m in height and measuring 0.6m in thickness from ESE to WNW and 0.5m in width. The standing stone is situated in disturbed pasture on a slight terrace, overlooking a large boggy pond to the NW.

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.
