The monument comprises the remains of two standing stones, which probably date to the Bronze Age (c. 2300 - 800 BC).

The two stones stand c. 3m apart in the centre of a pasture field. The western stone is c. 2m x 1.6m x 1m, rectangular in cross section, with a very irregular top which may well have been split in the past. The eastern stone is c. 1.5m high, 1.3 x 1.3m, a rough rectangle in cross section, with a very irregular profile. Just to the west of the stones excavation in 1980 revealed the remains of a prehistoric ditched enclosure.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric burial and ritual practices. It is an important relic of a prehistoric funerary and ritual landscape and retains significant archaeological potential. There is a strong probability of the presence of intact burial or ritual deposits, together with environmental and structural evidence. Standing stones are often 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.
