The monument consists of a stone with a cross carved into the surface, probably dating to the medieval period. The stone which is of a coarse conglomerate measures c0.9m long and 0.4m wide with the cross clearly visible. The cross itself is a simple incised design with arms of approximately the same size. The cross is enclosed by a slightly oval incised ring measuring 0.23 along the shaft and 20cm along the arms. The stone is set in a low roadside boundary wall.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of the organisation and practice of medieval Christianity. A cross marked stone may be part of a larger cluster of monuments and their importance can further enhanced by their group value.
