The Preacher's Stone
S P Oldham
As mentioned in an earlier blog post, there is a funeral home literally at the top of my garden. As the weather was lovely yesterday I nipped up there to take some photographs of the old headstones and my garden to illustrate what I was telling you. I also found The 'Preacher's Stone.'
The inscription on it reads:
'Men of God preached from this stone in Tredegar at Penrhys Farm at the commencement of the cause in 1799 until the first Church was built in 1909.'
Great bit of local history and possibly a good story prompt too!
