Standing Stone / Menhir


Visited 2nd January 2012

Stopped off to see this beauty on the way back from our New Years stay on Anglesey.

Not as difficult to park as I feared, there is a small layby (well probably a passing place!) up the lane, but we took Postman's advice and parked at the field gateway.

The field was extremely soggy after the recent rains and whilst everyone else took the sensible option and photographed the stone from the gateway I picked my way ankle deep in mud into the field. (Well its not a proper visit if you can't hug the stone!)

Up close the stone is impressively tall and its elevated position looks out like a sentinel towards Snowdonia just across the straits. The wind was whipping up as I huddled up against the stone to avoid some of the bitter chill, and as the clouds scudded across the sky the sun sent fingers of light lancing down over the mountains. It's a fantastic setting for a stone, and well worth the visit, I didn't want to leave.
