Erected at expense of 9th Lord Petre,Lord of the Manor of Selby (1742-1801). Ashlar, Gothick details, and neo-classical conception. Lower part has quatrefoil plan, of which each foil terminates in a semi-cone abutting a cruciform core. In next stage up, each arm of the cross plan is gabled, with badly eroded gargoyles where the lower parts of each gable meet: gables are eroded, but look as if they may have been crocketed. Then the arms taper gently in highest stage, to form a pyramid which remains cruciform in plan.
