Remains of medieval churchyard cross, the ball flower ornament suggesting an early C14 date.
Stump of cross shaft with eroded broach stops, approximately 0.4m high, on a small octagonal 2-tier base. The tiers are moulded and corbelled. The underside of the top tier bears a ball-flower frieze, much eroded.
Listed as a good example of the base of a medieval preaching cross, the form of the plinth being unusual. Group value with the Church of St. Barrwg.
Scheduled Ancient Monument Mon143.
