The monument consists of a stone with crosses carved into the surface, probably dating to the medieval period. The stone is set into a concrete base and measures 0.92m high by 0.37m N/S and 0.13m E/W. The stone is decorated on the E face only, with two crosses and three circles. It lies within the churchyard at Llanspyddid, to the S of the Church.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of the organisation and practice of medieval Christianity. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. 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 and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
