The Upper Cock Inn, Croesyceiliog
The Upper Cock Inn, Croesyceiliog
Located on The Highway, adjacent to the junction with the Garw. The weather vane,on the left edge of the main roof, has an appropriate shape.

The name Croesyceiliog, the Cock's Cross, may derive from a large sculptured crowing cock that used to be on a mound in a field near the Inn. It was possibly a medieval reference to St Peter's denial of Jesus. The sculpture is thought to have been destroyed by Cromwell's troops in the mid 17th century during their pillaging of the countryside.
