The monument consists of a cross base in the churchyard of St. Govan's church, Llangovan. The medieval cross base comprises six ashlar-built steps 3.87m square at ground level surmounted by an square/octagonal socket-stone 0.81m wide by 0.61m high with large, keeled, broached (or bull-nosed") stops at the corners. The stone is chamfered at the top edge. The socket-stone supports a fine Edwardian cross-shaft and lantern-head erected in 1912
