"When we were kids we often played in the grounds of the old Manor. Village gossip and rumour was that nobody had lived at the Manor for over thirty years. The gates were kept locked and there was a nine foot wall around the entire grounds but us kids found a way in by a large overhanging tree at the rear. We liked to play on a large open grass area at the front of the building and this was overlooked by a fancy style window. This window appeared dark and without any sign of life but sometimes we had an eerie feeling of being watched. On a few of these occasions we felt compelled to look up at the window only to see what appeared to be a grey face looking down on us all. The face then seemed to just fade into the dark window. As I said- the window appeared dark and without any sign of life..!!"

This carved stone could be the remnant
of a medieval wayside pilgrims cross - however it is popularly believed to be a monument commemorating the assassination of Richard de Clare in the year 1135. This stone is known locally as The Stone of Vengenance or Dial Cerrig.
Richard de Clare and his party were attacked and slain by Morgan -ap -Owen and his supporters.
The killing was an act of revenge and some say that the Welsh had very good cause.
The stone can be found in the Black Mountains and is seen by hill walkers following the Beacons Way (Ffordd y Bannau).
Many people have reported a feeling of deep foreboding as they approached the stone..!
