It is set on a stepped granite base with lead lettering naming those who died in the First and Second World Wars. The cross, which was probably a wayside cross was formerly used as a gate- post before it was set up as a memorial. It is said to bear the marks of bomb damage from an air-raid of December 17th 1942.
