The monument comprises the remains of three earthen built round barrows which probably date to the Bronze Age (c. 2300 - 800 BC). Barrow A is to the north-west and measures c.6m in diameter and c.1.8m high. Barrow B measures c.18m in diameter and 1.8m high and Barrow C measures c.22.5m in diameter and c.1.35m high. Part of Barrow B is now included in the road verge.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric burial and ritual practices. The features are an important relic of a prehistoric funerary and ritual landscape and retain significant archaeological potential. There is a strong probability of the presence of both intact ritual and burial deposits, together with environmental and structural evidence. Barrows may be 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.
