  • St. Brynach's Cross
    This cross depicts the design of the top of the great cross in Wales in the churchyard in Nanhyfer, Pembrokeshire. The great cross, 13 feet tall and ornamented with Celtic knotwork, is dedicated to St. Brynach who lived in the late 5th and early 6th centuries. He was a native of nearby Cemaes who, after a pilgrimage to Rome and a sojourn in Brittany, returned to Wales to lead an ascetic life in Nanhyfer. The cross was carved in the 10th or 11th century. Legend has it that the cuckoo, on returning to Wales in the spring, first sings from the cross on April 7th, the saint's feast day.
