Historical Description

Grongar Hill, an eminence in Cardiganshire, on the river Towy, 3½ miles WSW of Llandeilo-fawr. Its summit commands a charming view, shows traces of an ancient camp, and has a hawthorn tree, under which Dyer is said to have written the fine poem containing the lines:- " Grongar Hill invites my song, Draw the landscape bright and strong; Grongar, in whose mossy cells Sweetly musing Quiet dwells."
