The monument comprises the remains of two earthen built round barrows, which probably date to the Bronze Age (c. 2300 - 800 BC) and which are located 95m apart and aligned E-W. Barrow I is some 28m in diameter and 1.4m high and Barrow II is 25m in diameter and varying from 0.3 to 1.1m high.
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. It is two circles, both of which measure 30m in diameter and centred on each ndividual cairn.
