Fan Gyhirych

Round Cairn

Fan Gyhirych (Round Cairn) by GLADMAN Attempting to capture some sense of the Bronze Age Welsh uplands.... a small pool near Bwlch y Duwynt contains new life in the form of frog sporn.... below, to the left, lies the source, the birthplace of the Afon Nedd... whilst crowning the right hand flank of the dark mass of Fan Gyhirych is a substantial Bronze Age cairn. A monument to death... or was it supposed to be to the life and death cycle? Whatever, it clearly mattered.
