The monument comprises the remains of a standing stone, which probably dates to the Bronze Age (c. 2300 - 800 BC). This low, possibly recumbent, stone measures c.1.65m east-west by c.1.1m, and reaches a maximum of c.1m high on the east. It may originally have been an erratic, but does appear to form part of an alignment running from the Four Stones (Scheduled Ancient Monument RD004) eastwards towards Burfa Bank.
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. Standing stones are often 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.
