The Cross-Shaft at Saint Mael and Saint Sulien's Church, Corwen
The cross-shaft in the churchyard of Saint Mael and Saint Sulien's Church is thought to date from the 10th or 11th century. The inscription on the shaft has baffled historians for years. It is believed to be runic, the only readable letters spelling the word 'ipfus' which may be a personal name in Old English or Old Norse.
