Description

The monument comprises the remains of a standing stone, which probably dates to the Bronze Age (c. 2300 - 800 BC) and stands on a gentle south east facing slope near the confluence of the Western Cledddau and Afon Anghof. The standing stone measures 2.9m in height and is 1.8m wide by 0.76m deep at the base.

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. The standing stone is located 225m north north west of another (PE512 Standing Stone 450m SSE of Lower Broadmoor Farm) and its importance is further enhanced by this group value.

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