The Mên-an-Tol consists of three upright granite stones: a round stone with its middle holed out with two standing stones to each side, in front of and behind the hole. When seen at an angle from one side, the stones form a three-dimensional "101".
The two side stones are both about 1.2 metres high. The holed stone is roughly octagonal in outline. It is 1.3 metres wide and 1.1 metres high; the circular hole is 0.5 m in diameter.
There is one other standing stone nearby, and six recumbent stones, some of which are buried. It dates back to both the Bronze Age and Neolithic.
