Standing Stone / Menhir


This stone on Mynydd Drumau goes to the Neath river for a drink every Easter Sunday morning, according to Grinsell's source in 'Folklore of Prehistoric Sites in Britain'. The link below mentions that children used to race to the stone on Easter Sunday - I guess that they were trying to get there before it slunk off, or to get there before it got back?

The stone is 4.3m tall, so does not look particularly well camouflaged in its current guise as a gatepost, as you can see from the photos on Megalithica.
