Built in the C18 or early C19 and shown on the 1838 Tithe map at the SE corner of the churchyard. The churchyard was extended E when the church was rebuilt in 1848-9, at which time an extension of the rubble stone boundary wall was built abutting the E side of the pound. The entrance to the pound is an alteration of the mid or late C19.
A sub-circular pound of rubble stone with C20 cock-and-hen coping course. On the E side is a camber-headed doorway with dressed voussoirs and rock-faced keystone. On the S side facing the road is a narrow loop. The churchyard wall abuts the E and W sides.
Listed for its special historic interest as a rare surviving small pound, a building type once familiar in rural Wales.
