Description

The monument comprises the remains of a standing stone, which probably dates to the Bronze Age (c. 2300 - 800 BC). The standing stone measures c 2m in height and is 1.7m wide by 0.4m deep at the base. It stands on a low mound of stones of uncertain origin.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric burial and ritual practices. It is an important relic of a prehistoric funerary and ritual landscape and retains significant archaeological potential. There is a strong probability of the presence of intact burial or ritual deposits, together with environmental and structural evidence. The standing stone is inter-visible with PE345 Sampson Cross Standing Stone c 500m to the north west, and its importance is further enhanced by this group value.

The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
