A Bronze Age burial cairn, now surrounded by a modern wall, encircled by three standing stones. It is not known if the stones were part of a circle.
The round mound, 30.5m in diameter, was opened in 1830 and a bronze rapier was recovered. The three standing stones are 2.1m, 2m and 1.2m high. The tumulus is not central to them.
In 1794 the monument was described as a "circular mound of earth surrounded with large unpolished stones at a considerable distance from each other". About 320m east of the cairn, on the other side of the roundabout, is a fourth standing stone, 2.7m high.
