The monument consists of a stone with a cross carved into the surface, probably dating to the medieval period. The cross-slab is now used as lintel of a stable. Part of the cross is missing, where it has been cut. The cross has expanded terminals and pointed towards the base and measures 0.45m ins in length. The engraved face is 1.38m long and 0.36m wide.
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.
The scheduled area comprises the remains described.
