Cilmery, sometimes spelt Cilmeri, is a village in the county of Powys, mid Wales. Lying 2 miles west of Builth Wells and south of Newbridge on Wye, the village is bound by two rivers, Afon Chwefri and the Afon Irfon. The Afon Irfon is famed for the Prince of Wales, Llywelyn Ein Llyw Olaf, being killed on its banks in December 1288.
The village possesses a memorial stone at Cefn –y- Bedd in memory of Llewelyn ap Griffith's final battleground. Llywelyn led the Welsh resistance to the inevitable invasion by Edward I. By the end of 1282 Llywelyn was dead, having been killed on 11th of December in a brief engagement with English forces at Irfon Bridge near Cilmery. ....
