Overview

This stone monument stands close to the area where Llywelyn ap Gruffudd is thought to have died on 11th December 1282. Climb down the stairs to see the well, where tradition says Llywelyn's severed head was washed before being sent to Edward I at Rhuddlan Castle.

This grave is situated in Cilmery and if you walk behind it and down some steps you will come to a well, where they washed Prince Llywelyn's head before sending it off to London.

The little terriers next door will be barking when you visit. You need good sturdy shoes as could be slippy. Steps to go down.

After speaking to the Landlord at The Prince Inn, he recommended we visit Llewelyn Monument, just a short distance away. There's a small layby alongside the Monument so parking is easy. We wandered across the grass and could not believe what we had stumbled on....More
