Small standing stone - close to square in section. Pronounced lean to SE. Siting: just to NW side of a rounded ridge. Not locally visible for far to SE. Quite eroded around base revealing packing stones. Stone polished by cattle and horses. (Smith, 2003)

The excavation did not conclusively determine the date and nature of the stone, however a prehistoric date is likely. (Smith, 2011)
