Most scheduled monuments are not occupied buildings and have no postal address or postcode of their own. In rural and coastal areas, the nearest geocodable postal address may be several miles away.


The monument includes a cairn 7 metres in diameter, and a carved rock which is embedded in the cairn. It is situated on Barningham Moor, in the modern sheep-grazing enclosure known as Scale Knoll Allotment. The cairn is composed of sandstone rocks, and survives to a height of 0.7 metres. It has been slightly disturbed by stone-robbing in the past, which has given it an irregular shape. The carved rock is visible embedded in the south west side of the cairn, and is partly covered by vegetation. It is not possible to establish whether the rock is part of the cairn material or predates the cairn. The visible part of the rock measures 0.8 metres by 0.35 metres by 0.1 metre. The carving consists of two large cups joined by a groove, and one small cup. Scheduled.
