A spot is here called the Tomb of Bronwen, said to have derived its name from a tradition that a queen of Ireland died or was buried at it in consequence of a blow by the hand of her husband. There are an endowed school with £18 ayear, and charities £40. Dr. Williams, ancestor of the Wynnes of Wynnestay, was rector.
