It bears the inscription 'TS' in letters 0.09m high in its north face. An erosion hollow 0.2m deep has formed on the northern side of the stone. A similarly inscribed stone (SX 67 NE 142) lies 180m to the north-east and three other stones (SX 67 NE 22, 140 and 141) with different inscriptions lie in the area of Riddon Ridge. Hemery (1983) suggests that they are tinners' bound stones.
