Save Rodney’s Pillar

Rodney’s Pillar is a Grade II listed monument, erected at the top of Breidden Hill, Powys, in 1782 to pay tribute to Admiral George Brydges Rodney.

We are a not for profit organisation whose mission is to preserve Rodney’s Pillar for the benefit of the public as a prominent heritage landmark. The pillar is in desperate need of repair and we urgently need your help to save this iconic monument. An outward bulge has formed on the side of the pillar, approximately a third of the way up, with vertical cracks and small holes forming. Without structural repairs, the pillar is in danger of falling down. The cost of the repairs could be as much as £200K.
