SN0403 : Carew Cross

taken 15 years ago, near to Carew, Pembrokeshire/Sir Benfro, Great Britain

Carew Cross
Carew Cross
An 11th century Celtic cross, one of the finest free-standing ancient stone crosses in the UK, erected to the memory of the last King of Dyfed (Maredydd ap Edwin, d.1035), although it may have been originally used to commemorate the gift of this land by Maredydd to The Church. An agreed translation for the abbreviated Latin inscription was reached only in the 1940s.
