Description

The monument consists of a stone with a cross carved into the surface, probably dating to the medieval period. It is located in a an enclosure marked 'Parc y Cerrig Santaidd 1902' and is a rough pillar stone (fractured in two) with an incised cross ring on one piece. Also present are what appears to be a circular cross base together with a setting of other small stones

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.
