Seven sandstone steps lead to a nineteenth century neo-gothic square shaft with a small metal (bronze?) plate on the east face face. The top of the shaft has some carved decoration. The shaft is surmounted by a building-like structure with ornate gables and a column at each corner. This is topped by a sandstone cross.
The cross marks the spot where a weekly market was held from 1278 under a charter granted by the monks of the Abbey of St. Werbergh, Chester, by Edward I. The steps are the thirteenth century originals to which the shaft and cross were restored in 1874.This cross was stolen and the present cross is a recent (1970s) replacement, a gift from the Bromborough Society.
