Standing Stones


Visited 10.9.12

Another CADW site – Anglesey certainly has its fair share of them!

We parked near the field gate and soon discovered that the field in which the stones reside was a sea of activity.

The weather was dry and the last of the crop was being harvested.
There were two of those clever machines in operation which wraps bails of hay in plastic – very interesting if you ever get to see one in action.
It looked like the whole family were out – grandparents, wives, children etc.
Of course they all stopped and stared as I smiled and waved and marched straight to the standing stones!
I saw one of the farmers whispering in a small boy’s ear.
Probably went something like this– ‘that’s one of those strange folk I told you about’!!

The stones occupy a commanding spot which gives good views.
Both stones are about 8ft high and are covered in green lichen.

These stones are easy to access and are well worth a visit.

I loved these stones, could have stayed here for hours (no baling going on then though). thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat
