Maen Llwyd (Bronaber)

Standing Stone / Menhir


Visited 9.12.11

This was my last site of the day and the light was fading fast. It was so dull in fact that I was in two minds about attempting to find the stone. In the end I got there just before it became completely dark.

Parking opposite the farm drive in a small lay by I jumped over the gate and headed down the track. The stone was a lot easier to find than I was expecting. As you walk down the farm drive you soon come to a passing place on your left (5 minute walk).
The standing stone is easily seen from here on your left.

The ground towards the stone is very boggy and I was lucky that I had my wellies on!
The stone itself is about 1.5 metres high and leaning to the south west. It is covered in lichen.
Right next to the 'main' stone is a smaller version – about a third of the size.
I have no idea if this is prehistoric and connected with Maen Llywd or just a random stone which happens to be here?

By the time I got back to the car it was black. I am glad I didn't get here 10 minutes later!

Worth a quick look when in the area.
