The monument consists of a free standing cross in the churchyard of St. Bartholomew's church, Llanover. The octagonal medieval cross-shaft survives to a height of 1.40m and has elongated pyramid stops at the base. It is 0.30m wide at the base, tapering to 0.28m wide at the top. The base comprises four ashlar-built steps 3.30m square at the base, surmounted by a square/octagonal socket-stone 0.87m wide by 0.75m high with large, keeled, broached (or bull-nosed") stops at the corners and cable moulding around the stops and top edge. The cross was recorded in its current position in 1893.
