This photograph of one of the early Christian stones at Margam was taken in 1949.
The Margam Stones are now collected in a building which in times past served as the village school and number almost thirty, ranging in date from the sixth to the seventeenth centuries. Among the most noted of these are the Conbelin Cross and Carreg Fedyddiol, but the collection includes examples of Latin memorial stones from the sixth century, an early cross slab (likely to have been eighth or ninth century), Glamorgan disc-headed crosses of the ninth to eleventh centuries, Glamorgan cartwheel crosses dated from the tenth and eleventh centuries, and Crus-Christi plaitwork cross slabs as well as sculptures and inscriptions from Margam Abbey itself, dating from the thirteenth to the seventeenth centuries.
