Late medieval, probably late C15 churchyard cross which has lost its top and has been unrestored since. The steps are now in a very uneven state although the previously reported ivy growth has been removed.
Built of sandstone blocks, now very unevenly fixed. Three square diminishing steps of which the bottom one has a nosing. The top step carries a shallow square base, which supports a plain socket stone and two stones of a tapered shaft with base broaches, the top is missing.
Included for its special interest as a late medieval churchyard cross which, despite damage, retains significant early fabric.
Scheduled Ancient Monument: MM312(MON) - called St. Bridget's Churchyard Cross, Llansantffraed.
