SO3031 : Early churchyard cross, Llanveynoe

Early churchyard cross, Llanveynoe
Early churchyard cross, Llanveynoe
In the churchyard of St Beuno and St Peter, where it has been since the 7th century, or possibly 100 years before that. This is a very early Christian site, as the sculptures inside the church confirm. The church itself has been twice 'restored' and has the feel of a modest Victorian affair, but the early Christian evidence is thrilling, and all in such a wondrous location high in the borderland hills. The vertical groove in the back of the cross is unexplained (or could it be the front ?). The cross was moved to its present position in 1929.
