The monument consists of a cross base in the churchyard of St. Catwg's church, Cwmcarfan. The medieval cross comprises five ashlar-built steps 4.30m square at ground level, surmounted by a massive square/octagonal socket-stone 0.97m wide by 0.80m high, with large, keeled, broached (or bull-nosed") stops at the corners. Only the stops have cable moulding and the socket stone is bisected by an unusual horizontal off-set and chamfer on all sides. The cross was restored
