SH5901 : Croes Faen

taken 10 years ago, near to Tywyn, Gwynedd, Great Britain

Croes Faen.
Croes Faen.
Croes Faen is almost certainly not prehistoric. It's thought to be the remains of a Medieval cross, the head having been removed or knocked off at some point. Croes Faen means stone cross. Local tradition says that this stone was used in some way to rid the place of a fiery dragon!LinkExternal link
