The monument consists of a free standing cross probably dating to the early medieval or medieval period which stands in the churchyard, to the north of the church. The structure stands 2m high in total on an octagonal base which is 0.7m high and has four diagonal chamfered stops at its base. The octagonal shaft is set into a lead lined socket in the base and measures 1.3m in height and 0.3m in total width, half way up the shaft are two worn crockets.
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 may be part of a larger cluster of monuments and their importance can further enhanced by their group value.
