Chartist's Cave


The Chartist's Cave is located in a prominent knoll to the east of Garn Fawr round cairn on the open, exposed moorland of Trefil Las. The original name of the cave seems to have been Tylles Fawr (the Great Hole). The cave’s main claim to fame rests on strong local tradition that it was pressed into service as an arms factory and secret meeting place in the period leading up to the Chartist Insurrection of 1839.
