History

Cilmeri (sometimes given the anglicised spelling Cilmery) is a village in Powys, mid-Wales two and a half miles west of Builth Wells. The village is served by Cilmeri railway station on the Heart of Wales Line.

The village is famous for being close to the spot where the last native Prince of Wales of direct descent, Llywelyn ap Gruffudd, was slain in a skirmish by soldiers in the service of Edward I of England, on 11 December 1282. A memorial stone to Llywelyn ap Gruffudd was erected on the site in 1956 and serves as the focal point for an annual day of remembrance on the anniversary of his death. (From Wikipedia)
