A very round cairn mostly grassed over. There are a few indentations in the centre that could be the result of collapsed cists.

The stone in the foreground could be an outlier.

Cadw lists it as being religious, ritual and funerary, but also tells us that it known locally as 'The Cock Pit', could this be a later development/use of a convenient small round enclosure?
