The monument comprises the remains of a round barrow, a burial mound probably dating to the Bronze Age (c.2300 BC - 800 BC) and situated in open moorland on the saddle between Ty'n-y-ddol Hill to the E and Carreg Lwyd Hill to the NW. The grass and bracken-covered barrow is circular on plan and measures about 10.5m in diameter and up to about 0.6m in height. The barrow appears undisturbed.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric burial and ritual practices. The well-preserved monument is an important relic of a prehistoric funerary and ritual landscape and retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of both intact burial or ritual deposits and environmental and structural evidence.
