The monument comprises the remains of a prehistoric round barrow, probably dating to the Bronze Age (c. 2300 BC - 800 BC). The grass-covered barrow is situated in an enclosed field of permanent pasture on a NE facing plateau. The mound is circular in shape on plan and measures c. 38m in diameter. It is rounded in profile and measures c. 1m in height. Neighbouring barrows on Plumstone Mountain are intervisible to the N.
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.
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 in shape and measures 42m in diameter.
