About the memorial: Y Garreg FawrTranslating into English as 'The Great Rock', the stone topping this plinth is reputed to be the top slab of a former chambered tomb, originally supported by pillars. The split in the stone is apparently a result of a bonfire being lit on top of it. The plaque on the plinth states 'Y Garreg Fawr: This ancient structure belongs to the Powells of Nanteos as Lords of the Manor of Llanbadarn Fawr'. To its left is a memorial to Brigadier Lewis Pugh Evans, awarded the Victoria Cross following an act of bravery on 4 October 1917 near Zonnebeke, Belgium, taking his battalion through German fire, taking out an enemy machine gun emplacement by rushing at it firing his revolver. he is buried in St Padarn's Churchyard, across the square from this memorial. The seat and plaque face the Llanbadarn Fawr War memorial which can be found on this website.
