Stone pillar, The Upper Cock, Croesyceiliog
This three-sided stone pillar is in the forecourt of The Upper Cock Inn LinkExternal link. The side seen here faces The Highway. The inscription reads

Here is an inn - the cross of the cock.
A welcome is yours for a penny,
For payment so small,
Good beer waits for you all,
Come in, taste our ale, good as any.

There is no date on the inscription, but the stone appears to be much too new to have been erected when beer was a penny a pint.

On another side is the Welsh version of the text. The third side is blank.
