I've just been looking at your photos of the Longstone, and I was wondering what you thought about its age. It looks almost square in cross section, and <I>pure joy's</I> note about the crosses made me wonder whether it may be Medieval.

For the benefit of HH peeps:

Did you see any sign of the crosses? I recently visited a stone that turned out to be Medieval (Maen Serth), and that too had a cross on it, or so I found out after my visit. The square-ish shape of the Longstone reminds me of Croes Faen, which is also near a road junction:

Croes Faen is the remains of a stone cross, the head bit no longer attached. Just thought I'd share these observations, and see what you thought.
