This may have been a passage grave or tumuli. Now there are 4 uprights and a damaged capstone, all held in place by two brick pillars. The capstone measures 12ft (3.7m) by 5ft (1.5m), one other stone lays nearby.

It was excavated in 1936, no human bones were found, the original area of the chamber floor contained a layer of charcoal, and they found very little, a beaker fragment, a bared and tinged arrowhead, a flint chip that may have come from a flint axe, these mostly dating from the bronze age, although from the shape and construction its said to be a Neolithic construction.

The small markers around the stones only shows the limit to the protected area, and has nothing to do with the extent of the original mound as some suggest.
