The monument comprises the remains of a prehistoric round barrow, probably dating to the Bronze Age (c. 2300 BC - 800 BC). The turf-covered barrow is situated in improved grassland on a NE facing slope. It is circular on plan, measuring c. 20m in diameter and c. 0.5m in height.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric burial rites, social organisation and the environment. The monument retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of both structural evidence and the presence of intact burial or ritual deposits within, and prehistoric ground surfaces preserved below, the barrow. It is the easternmost example of a number of barrows located across Dudwell and Plumstone Mountains.
The area to be scheduled comprises the remains described and an area around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive. It is circular on plan and measures 35m in diameter.
