The cross is medieval in date and constructed of limestone. The base takes the form of a socket stone, now partly buried and standing up to 0.37 metres above the present ground surface. The stone is approximately 0.8 metres in section at the base with moulded and chamfered corners rising to a top of octagonal section. Set into the socket stone with lead is the lower part of the shaft, rectangular in section at the base and rising above moulded and chamfered corners in tapering octagonal section to a height of 1.42 metres. The top of the stone is flat with a small hole in the centre; on it was formerly fixed the upper part of the shaft and cross head. Scheduled.
