      You really got to note where Mathrafal Court is sited, get lost and ask around and most locals will direct you to Mathrafal farm having no idea about the Court or where it  is. Yes, getting lost to local memory and thus I suggest that a local History Information board is placed in Meifiod which does spell out this local history and where the court is. Further, mention should be made of the  historically signifigant Meifod Tithe Riots and is there a plaque to such as at Llangwm in Denbighshire? Both this latter historical event and history of Mathrafal is much publically ignored in Meifod, sign of the times? Patriots need to put such back on the map by holding Patriotic Commemorative Rallies and Festivals in above association also why no memorials. See below.
