Description

The monument comprises the remains of a standing stone, which probably dates to the Bronze Age (c. 2300 - 800 BC). The stone measures 2m in height, 0.9m in breadth and 0.7 in depth.

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. Two other important Bronze Age standing stones; Stone South of Prysg Farm (PE409) and Temple Druid Standing Stone (PE522) lie in the immediate vicinity and their close association further increases the importance.

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