Description

The monument comprises the remains of a Bronze Age (c. 2400-1000 BC) standing stone. It is approximately 2.5m high and forms part of a group of stones which are located below the western end of the Cefn Bryn ridge. The stone is a local quartz conglomerate with roughly vertical sides rising to a blunt top.

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 which related evidence may be expected to survive.
