The monument consists of a cross base in the churchyard of St. Martin's church, Pen y Clawdd. The medieval cross base comprises three ashlar-built steps 1.70m square at ground level, surmounted by a square, chamfered socket-stone some 0.50m wide by 0.29m high. The bottom step has been partially restored at the north-west corner and the socket stone supports a Victorian shaft and cross-head. The cross was recorded in its current position in 1893.
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 base 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.
