Cross Cemetery, French Heritage monument to Melrand

Calvary in chamfered on dual pedestal and base drum shaped curved stone altar. The set is based on a step to two degrees. The cross was originally in the old cemetery of landscaped South of the Church, before his translation on the road to Pontivy in the new cemetery. It probably dates from the middle of the 19th century by stylistic comparison with the other mounts of the commune.
