The monument consists of a cross shaft and is located on the top of a small hill. It has a rectangular stone base, with a chamfered upper edge and mutilated stops at the corners. The base stone is fractured, and has been repaired with cement and two iron dowels. Set into a lead-lined socket are the remains of a rectangular shaft with chamfered edges, measuring 2ft 6in high.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of the organisation and practice of Christianity. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. A cross shaft may be part of a larger cluster of monuments and their importance can further enhanced by their group value. The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
