Caerphilly: dragon that used to be a tree
Caerphilly: dragon that used to be a tree
This carving of a dragon has been sculpted from the tree in situ. The inscription reads:

"Gwlad, Gwlad, pleidol wyf i'm gwlad
Tra môr yn fur i'r bur hoff bau
O bydded i'r hen iaith barhau

Evan Jones, 1809-1878"

Part of the Welsh national anthem, a rough translation of this passage, taken shamelessly from an Internet source:
Wales! Wales! O but my heart is with you!
And long as the sea
Your bulwark shall be
To Cymru my tongue shall be true.
