The monument comprises the remains of two standing stones, which probably date to the Bronze Age (c. 2300 - 800 BC). The two standing stones are about 2m apart. The northern stone is thin and flat, the wide sides facing west and east, and is about 1.8m high; the more impressive southern stone is about 3m high and squarish in cross-section.
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.
