An important collection of early Medieval sculpture, of which 10 pieces were originally scheduled. One of these, no 10, is now missing. The remaining nine consist of:
6 cross-incised slabs
1 fragment of inscribed slab
1 cross shaft
1 fragment of decorated stone
These collections, with other isolated examples, may point to the existence of a local sculptural school or workshop, possibly centred on Llangaffo, which has been associated with the early Christian site of Merthyr Caffo.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of Early medieval sculpture. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. The structures themselves may be expected to contain archaeological information concerning sculpture and design techniques.
The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
