Carn March Arthur
Carn March Arthur
Slate marker for the hoof imprint of King Arthur's horse, though I failed to find the imprint. Nearby Llyn Barfog was one of the legendary homes of Afanc, a water demon which plagued the people of Aberdyfi. It would kill anyone who came too close to the lake, occasionally causing floods by thrashing its tail, and pillaging the local farmland. King Arthur received an appeal to help, and dragged the Afanc from the lake using a magical chain tied to his horse Llamrai. In the struggle on the foreshore, Llamrai left a hoof-print on the rocks, which is still visible today and known locally as Carn March Arthur
