Mountain Centre 1

Standing Stone / Menhir


Apologies for the name, it is given as this in:
Brycheiniog Volume 18; 'The Prehistoric Standing Stones of Breconshire' James,

OS map required

On public Moorland with numerous rights of way.

On Mynydd Illtyd, 8km west of Brecon and 1.6km Southwest of Brecon Beacons National Park Mountain Centre.

From Brecon, opposite the right turn for Blaengwrthyd Farm. Visible from single track road. Situated close to the field boundary.

The stone is square in plan, and stands just under 1m high. Gives the appearance of a broken stump, leaning towards the track. I believe it is made of Old Red Sandstone.
