Dolmen / Quoit / Cromlech

Presaddfed (Dolmen / Quoit / Cromlech) by Rhiannon From 'On the cromlechs extant in the Isle of Anglesey' by H Longueville Jones, in the Archaeological Journal v3 (1846).

The next [cromlechs] in size and importance to that on the Marquis of Anglesey's grounds are those at Presaddfed near Bodedern. Of these too we give a view, by which it will be seen that one of very large size is still erect, while another close to it is partially fallen down; the former offers a shelter of at least 12 ft. square to the former and a party of six or eight labourers, whenever they are overtaken in their work by a sudden shower; the cattle commonly take refuge under it, and it is surrounded by a great number of small stones, affording a strong presumption that here too there was once a carn.

It is interesting to see them sometimes in better shape, sometimes apparently just the same? And drawings do convey the feel of the place in a different way. Rhiannon Posted by Rhiannon
