Commemoration plaque - Pilleth Churchyard
Commemoration plaque - Pilleth Churchyard
The plaque laid into the ground within the churchyard commemorates those who fell in the Battle of Pilleth in 1402. The battle was fought between Edmund Mortimer and Owen Glendower; the former had the largest force but was handicapped by the need to scale the hill and by changes of allegiance among his men. Estimates of the number of casualties vary but it is thought that at least 800 of Mortimer's men were killed.
