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.

Super walk amidst awesome wilderness , with no other walkers up on the crags, we were able to extend the walk and discovered Cerrig Arthur stone circle just seven minutes from the start. Bare left off the track and look over the ridge. We had the entire area to ourselves and loved the solitude and tranquility. Discovered a beautiful small pond along the way and were rewarded with stunning views of Cader Idrus bathed in the setting sunlight. A magical afternoon and evening. Big thanks to Pat.

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!
