Caftell y Waun,or Chirk Castle, in Denbighshire, is the grand Mansion of the Middletons, and the most perfect habitable Caftle in Wales; It stands upon an eminence, and commands a most beautiful picturesque Country. When it was occupied by its ancient Barons it appears to have been the receptacle of Bards.

There is another very Ancient Tune that bears a similar name to the above; A Rhapsody of it, as
formerly used with the Cowydd Pedwar, concludes each stanza as follows.
“Nawdd Mair a nawdd y grôg ,-

. The protection of Mary & protection of the Cross;
Hai down ir deri danno."

Come let us hasten to the Oaken-Grove.
Which is the burden of an old Song of the Druids, sung by the Bards and Vades, to call the people
to their religious assemblies in the Groves. Also, it is evident that the old English Song,

“Hie down, down derry down!'
Alfo,

“In Summer time when leaves grow-green,

Down, a down, a down?
are borrowed from that Druidical Song .
