Place:


Graig  Radnorshire

 

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

GRAIG, a township in Llandegley parish, Radnorshire; 5¼ miles WNW of Radnor. It lies under Cefn-Craig, 2, 163 feet high; and is conjoint with the townships of Swydd and Tynlan.

The location is that of the hamlet of Lower Cefn, and is highly tentative. The name "Graig" has not been found on any of our historic maps, or on modern OS maps, or on the 1891 six inch to one mile map, so we locate it within the parish of Llandegley based on the description given by the Imperial Gazetteer: "It lies under Cefn-Craig".
