Drumlin topped with a standing stone
This stone, one of a number in the area, dates back to the days of the Crimean War hero, General Sir Hugh Rowlands V.C. of Plas Tirion Hall. Sir Hugh had a fondness for mock antiquities. As children we were told that each stone stood for one of the scores of battles Sir Hugh had won almost singlehandedly.
