Description

The monument consists of a stone with a cross carved into the surface, probably dating to the medieval period which has been placed in the centre of the lawn of a private residence. The rough boulder measures 1.8m in height, 1.2m in width and 0.4m in depth. The east face has been incised with a cross contained in circle.

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.
