Carn Caca (Cairn(s)) by GLADMAN The relationship of Bronze Age monuments to water - in all its forms - perhaps poses a rhetorical question. However I'm becoming more and more accustomed to finding them in proximity to river sources, springs and other water features.

Here the Melin Court Brook cascades to meet the Afon Nedd below, the latter sourced upon the saddle between Fan Gyhirych and Fan Nedd in Fforest Ffawr (both peaks bearing Bronze Age cairns). The hill rising approx due south of these falls, Carn Caca, is crowned by at least two certain monuments, one with exposed cist. Coincidence? Perhaps.

As others have said, what a terrific picture. Great area, must get to Carn Caca and nearby sites before too much longer. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

Thank you gentlemen. Nature does it best, doesn't she? Even in industrial South Wales there are gems like this.

Another interesting thing is that there is a church nearby, too, suggesting the spot has always been seen as 'spiritual' in one way or another.
