“Ridge of the Hill”
Cefn Bryn

Cefn-y-Bryn is a prominent ridge located in the Gower Peninsula in South Wales. It is one of the highest points in Gower. The area os especially known for its Neolithic burial sites, including Arthur’s Stone, also known as Maen Ceti in Welsh, a chambered tomb believed to date back over 5,000 years.

Tradition has it that Arthur, on his way to his final battle at Camlann, felt a pebble in his boot and, after taking it out, flung it into the distance. It landed some seven miles away at Cefn-y-Bryn.

– Cefn, in names of places, is the Welsh word for “high ridge.”
