The monument consists of a free standing cross. It stands 45m to the south of the east end of church, in what appears to be an extension of the Churchyard. The cross has a 0.75m sq base block with moulded corner stops, and the first 0.9m of an eight sided shaft.
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.
The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
