The monument comprises the remains of a standing stone, which probably dates to the Bronze Age (c. 2300 - 800 BC). The standing stone measures 2m in height, is 1.3m wide by 1mdeep at the base and tapers sharply to an L-shape at the top.
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.
