Plague grave in Rhymney

A couple of days ago I decided to photograph the single plague grave which lies just north of Pontllotyn, near Rhymney...

It's not obvious if the grave marker has an inscription, as it is in the middle of a field and difficult to get to, I guess I'll have to take a closer look to see if the zoom on the camera can get in close enough to make out the details.

I'd be interested to hear from anyone who knows more about this grave marker.

You can see an overview of the area using Google Maps - the plague grave is right in the centre of this link: Rhymney Plague Grave

Here is a close up of the marker :

Having Lived in Rhymney all my life I've always wondered what this stone was.

What is the story behind it?
