A GROUP campaigning to save an iconic monument has moved to remind people it is closed to walkers and visitors because of the coronavirus shutdown.

Rodney's Pillar is a hugely-popular attraction or walkers and visitors but since the Prime Minister Boris Johnson's announcement for people to remain indoors, the owners of the land the monument is on have closed the car park.

The move was conveyed to supporters of Save Rodney's Pillar via social media and they confirmed it is closed until further notice.

A spokesman said: "I have just spoken to the estate and they have confirmed that they have had close the car park at Criggion and permissive foot paths, to Rodneys Pillar.

"Rodney’s Pillar walks are out of bounds at the moment, will keep you all updated on the Facebook page when they reopen."
