Description

The monument consists of a stone with a cross carved into the surface, probably dating to the medieval period which is set into the bank on the southeast side of the crossroads. The small slab is 1m in height and 0.7m in width and has a double outline cross incised into its front face.

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.
