Rhos Maen Hir

Standing Stone / Menhir


The name Rhos Maen Hir when translated into English means approximately long stone on the heath. Here's how it breaks down:
rhos = moor, heath, plain
maen = stone
hir = long
The alternative name for this stone is the Capel Nebo Stone which is derived from the chapel that stands to the north of it.
