Cerrig y Cledd, Sword Stones, refers to the Field of Swords, the last battle fought between the Welsh and the Romans. When a treaty was agreed the Welsh threw a sword into the air as a pledge of faith. The sword landed on a rock and split it. We have seen this stone. The stone is split open and on each half there is an impression of a sword. If you find it please share the ten-figure map reference with everyone. Even if you do not find the stone, the walk is over remote Wales, with peace and wonderful views.

Is it possible to submit a photograph? We think we found the stone, but as it is 2000 years since the sword cut, it is rather hard to make out!
