The monument comprises the remains of a standing stone, which probably dates to the Bronze Age (c. 2300 - 800 BC). The stone is 1m high and measures 70cm by 70cm at its base. It is made from old red sandstone but has no signs of tooling on the worn sides. The top is irregular and may have been damaged and the base has a worn area all around it, caused by sheep poaching and weathering. There are a number of stone packers around the base. It is situated in open unimproved moorland. 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.
