History

Walled enclosure, presumably of 1891 when the cross was erected, but similar to the other walls erected in the late C19 by the Newborough estate.

Exterior

Walls enclosing square area around the cross, rubble stone with squared stone cappings and two square gatepiers at W entry with raised band below cap.

Reasons for Listing

Included for group value with the cross and neighbouring Abbey ruin, and part of the pattern of stone-walled enclosures which is a characteristic feature of the Bardsey landscape.
