The monument comprises the remains of a stone row, which probably date to the Bronze Age (c. 2300 - 800 BC). Parc-y-meirw comprises a row of 5 large stones, four standing and one recumbant. The stones run along the hedge bank dividing the road from the field. The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric burial and ritual practices. The features are an important relic of a prehistoric funerary and ritual landscape and retain significant archaeological potential. There is a strong probability of the presence of both intact ritual and burial deposits, together with environmental and structural evidence. Stone rows 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. It measures 100m x 20m and extends no further than the southern edge of the road.
