The monument comprises the remains of a standing stone, which probably dates to the Bronze Age (c. 2300 - 800 BC). There are an additional two recumbent stones lying 3m to the W of the standing stone, leading to suggestions that the site could be the remains of a largely destroyed stone circle or alignment. The standing stone measures 2m high, 1.25m wide and 0.8m thick and has one visible packing stone at its base.
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.
