The monument includes two standing stones, a recumbent stone and the archaeologically sensitive area between and around these features. The alignment is located on the level, southern part of the ridge of Furzehill Common 850m north west of Hoaroak Farm. The monument forms a row 14.8m long and orientated north east to south west. The stone at the south western end has fallen and is 700mm long by 330mm wide and lies within an erosion hollow. The central stone lying midway between the two outer stones is 100mm high, 240mm wide by 140mm thick and also lies within an erosion hollow. The stone at the north eastern end of the row is 600mm high, 200mm wide by 150mm thick. It too has an erosion hollow around it and, though leaning at an angle of some 25 degrees to the north west, is earthfast.
