There is also a scheduled monument with a similar name, Bettws Newydd Churchyard Cross-Base, at the same location as this building or very close to it. This is probably the same structure or related to it in some way.
Bettws Newydd Church is a well preserved and restored medieval parish church, probably founded in the twelfth century with a dedication to St Aeddan. The present fabric is fifteenth century in style and iIts most remarkable feature is the late medieval screen which is probably unique in the British Isles. This is oak with five panelled bays either side of a central doorway. The projecting loft above is plastered beneath, with finely a carved beam with undercut vine and oak trail. The front of the loft front is panelled in fourteen bays with pierced tracery to panels. The church was restored in 1872 in memory of W.R. Stretton of Brynderwen (d 1848).
