Cefn-yr-Henriw recumbent stone

Standing Stone / Menhir


Description from Coflein:

"A possible fallen standing stone is located on a small ledge above, and to the west of, a stream. It is a large quadrangular boulder 2.6m long, 1.8m wide (max), 1.1m wide (min) and 0.7m thick.

The alignment of the long axis of the stone is north-south. No evidence for a setting could be found. The stone is surrounded by a shallow ditch, about 0.2m deep and 0.5m wide, probably the result of peat shrinkage. Small boulders in this ditch may be the remains of packing material or, more likely, derived from the stone through erosion or attempts at quarrying it."
