Village roadside war memorial, on the west side of the A470. A Celtic ring cross of rusticated granite with interlace decoration on its face and a slightly tapering shaft, set on a tapered pedestal. The polished front (east) face of the pedestal is inscribed with the names of the local dead in the First World War. The pedestal is mounted on a square four-tiered base the upper step of which is granite; to its front face are added the names of the fallen in the Second World War. The cross stands at the centre of a small recess with a gravel surround, a mortared wall at rear and posts with iron chains between them; at the front chains between iron posts.David Leighton, RCAHMW, 23 April 2014
