Llanbedr Stones

Standing Stones


From Samuel Lewis' A Topographical Dictionary of Wales, 1849.

"The church, dedicated to St. Peter, is an ancient structure; according to an absurd local tradition it was originally intended to erect it at a place about forty yards to the right of the road, where are four or five broad stones, eight feet high, standing upright; but the workmen found that what they executed by day was removed at night, and therefore commenced the building on the site it now occupies."

Absurd indeed!
