The monument comprises the remains of a prehistoric round barrow pair, probably dating to the Bronze Age (c. 2300 BC - 800 BC). The barrows are situated in a field of pasture. Barrow 'A' is circular in shape on plan except on the N side where it meets the SW-NE aligned fence. It measures c. 25m in diameter. It has a shallow rounded profile and measures c. 0.3m in height. Barrow 'B' is circular in shape on plan except on the E side where it meets the NNW-SSE aligned fence. It measures c. 26m in diameter. It has tall rounded profile, measuring c. 1.4m in height.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric burial and ritual practices. The features are important relics of a prehistoric funerary and ritual landscape and retain significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of both intact burial or ritual deposits, together with environmental and structural evidence. The importance of the monument is further enhanced by the group value formed by the association between the barrow pair components.
