The monument comprises the remains of a stone circle, which probably dates to the Bronze Age (c. 2300 - 800 BC). The monument is 19yrds in diameter and consists of 15 stones (now visible), with big boulders on the edge. The area within stones is quite flat and there are no signs of a Cist.

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. Stone circles are often part of a larger cluster of monuments and their importance can be 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.
