The monument comprises the remains of a large standing stone, which probably dates to the Bronze Age (c. 2300 - 800 BC). It is of sandstone and measures 3m high by 2.1m wide by 0.70m thick. It has been preserved as a garden feature in the grounds of the Victorian house which has taken its name.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric burial and ritual practices. It is a rare survival of its type in southern Monmouthshire and is of similar shape and bulk to the few other remaining examples in the area. It retains significant archaeological potential with a strong probability of the presence of intact burial or ritual deposits, together with environmental and structural evidence and may have formed part of a wider ritual complex extending beyond the scheduled area, and which may survive as buried archaeological remains.

The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
