The monument comprises the remains of a earthen built round barrow, which probably datse to the Bronze Age (c. 2300 - 800 BC). The barrow has been ploughed and is made up of clay that is lighter in colour than the rest of the field. There are possible traces of a ditch on the north-west and western sides,.
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. Barrows may be 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.
