The monument comprises the remains of an earthen built round barrow, which probably date to the Bronze Age (c. 2300 - 800 BC). This barrow is located on the edge of a north-facing ridge overlooking a valley bottom. It is slightly oval in shape on plan and has a rounded profile, measuring c.22m north-south by c.20m, and standing c.2m high. It may be slightly truncated on the west, where a boundary crosses the base of its slope.

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.
