|This magnificent decorated cross dates from the eleventh century and it is believed to commemorate Maredudd ap Edwin who died in 1035.
This fourteen foot high structure is formed in two sections and in decorated with very intricate carvings with a wheel head on a separate shaft and is thought that it was erected soon after Maredudd was killed in battle. A number of crosses exist throughout Wales, but this is probably one of the most elaborate and early Christian monuments you will see.
