Llanelwedd Bronze Age burial cairn
Builth Wells and District Heritage Society hosted a talk in Buith Wells library on 26 June about the recent excavation by the Trust of a Bronze Age cairn in Llanelwedd Quarry. The meeting was attended by an enthusiastic audience of 24 members of the society who raised many interesting points about the site in a 'question and answer' session which followed the talk. There was some discussion about the Reverend Edmondes Owen of Llanelwedd who first excavated the site in 1906 and who is still revered locally.
A popular booklet has been produced about the excavations which were carried out with funding from the Aggregates Levy Sustainabilty Fund and Cadw in advance of an extension to the quarry.
