The monument consists of the remains of a medieval church. Situated on a small rise by the banks of the tidal Afon Loughor, the church served the parish of Llandeilo Tal-y-bont. Only the wall foundations of the church and churchyard now remain, the church itself was removed to St Fagan's Museum in the 1980s. The foundations of the church show a nave, south aisle, north chapel and south porch. The churchyard is enclosed by a stone wall.
