Description

The monument comprises a standing stone, which measures 2.05m tall, 1.4m wide and 1.15m deep. It is oriented NE-SW and leans slightly to the NE. It is earthfast and has a bluntly pointed top.

The standing stone is thought to be of religious or ceremonial significance and to date to the Bronze Age (c. 2300 BC - 800 BC). This example is intervisible with standing stone pair PE116. The monument is likely to retain significant archaeological deposits and enhance our knowledge of prehistoric ritual practices.

The area to be scheduled comprises the remains described and an area around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive. It is circular and measures 10m in diameter.
