Proceed along Y Waun, look out for this Gravel Mound on left.
Directly to the right you will see the 'Trig' Cofia Stryveland Memorial off in distance, of course the flag set up was only for purpose of the foto below.
Flag is that of the Royal House of Gwynedd and of it's last Prince Llywelyn III, Llywelyn ap Gruffydd. Why up side down, such signifies surrender, death or distress. Keep in mind that Llywelyn was assassinated at Aberedw in 1282 and that Wales was then distressed as was 'Stryveland' then and today. But Y Cymry of 'Stryveland' did not surrender but fought back to liberate their land and by 1334 had done so with the destruction of the Castle of Penlle'r Gaer. Patriots should note that 1282 was not 'The End' but the beginning as 'Stryveland' was in revolt 1282 - 1334, so to Cymru in 1294 with Madog's National Revolt, the 1315 - 16 Southern Revolt also Revolts followed in 1344 - 45 in Harlech, Denbigh, Rhuddlun and in Biwmaris. The coming of the 'Black Death' for some time took peoples mind off rebellion but in time 'Adar y Greim' Welsh Outlaw Rebel Resistance would continue and prepare way for the Owain Glyndwr war of National Liberation 1400 - 1416 - 1421 following which Y Gwerin Owain would continue the struggle up to 1536 prior to which the terror of 'Hanging Judge' Rowland Lee would bring upon these Outlaw Rebels would bring to an end such patriotic Welsh Resistance. However, in less than a 100 years the Peasantry, the people of the Pitchfork and Pike would arise to the rallying call of 'TRECH GWLAD NAG ARGLWYDD', so the struggle for land and Liberty would again continue.
Will it be so ever again, that is entirely up to you and you can make it happen on the 9 June 2012 following rally at above memorial by marching on the Windmill Plantation Fence to demonstrate our discontent at the Destruction, Devestation and Desecration of our Heritage on the Landscape of 'Stryveland' - Mynydd y Betws.
A landscape in which how many of our patriotic ancestors lay, having fought and died to liberate this, their homeland?
