The monument comprises the remains of a fine round barrow, probably dating to the Bronze Age (c.2300 BC - 800 BC) and situated within improved pasture on the rounded ENE-facing upper slopes of a prominent ridge. The grass-covered barrow is circular on plan and measures about 23m in diameter and up to 0.6m in height. It commands fine views to the E.
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 27m in diameter.
