Aberedw  Radnorshire

 

In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Aberedw like this:

ABEREDW, a parish, with a r. station, in Builth district, Radnor; at the influx of the Edw to the Wye, and on the Mid Wales railway, 4 miles SE of Builth. Post town, Builth. Acres, 4,300. Real property, £2,022. Pop., 281. Houses, 56. The property is much sub-divided. Aberedw Court is the seat of the Mynors of Treago. ...


Aberedw Castle, now reduced to mouldering walls, much hidden by foliage, on the summit of a mound, was the hunting-seat of Llewelyn-ap-Griffith, the last native prince of Wales. The adjacent scenery, up the glen of the Edw, is highly picturesque. Prince Llewelyn was slain in the vicinity; and an excavation in the rock, about 6 feet square, still bears the name of Llewelyn's Cave. The living is a rectory, united with Llanvareth, in the diocese of St. David's. Value, £355. Patron, the Bishop of St. David's. The church is an old edifice, in good condition, on an eminence a short way above the castle. T. Jones, the painter, who died in 1803, was a native.
