A mediaeval preaching cross base. Thomas Cromwell ordered the destruction of all preaching crosses in 1547, though many in S Pembrokeshire survived. This one was less fortunate. The present stone representing the cross shaft is a fragment of probably C17 window masonry.
Four steps of local rubble masonry, much restored. A later stone erected to replace the cross.
Listed as the fragmentaly survival of a medieval cross base, of group value with the church.
