The monument comprises the remains of a fine round barrow, probably dating to the Bronze Age (c.2300 BC - 800 BC) and situated within a cultivated field on the rounded summit of a prominent ridge. The barrow is circular on plan and measures about 28m in diameter and up to 1.2m in height.
The monument is of national importance as an important relic of a prehistoric funerary and ritual landscape and for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric burial and ritual. The monument retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of both intact burial or ritual deposits and environmental and structural evidence, including traces of a buried prehistoric land surface underneath.
The area to be scheduled comprises the remains described and an area around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive. It is circular and measures 32m in diameter.
