Meini Hirion (Kidwelly)

Standing Stone / Menhir


Visited 9.4.11
Taking the main road north out of Kidwelly you shortly come to a narrow turning on the left sign posted for Bryn Glas / Penlan Uchaf farm. Take this turning and head uphill until the road takes a sharp turn to the right – there is just enough room to park at this point on the left in front of a field gate. Go through the wooden field gate, down the slope and through another wooden field gate on your right. You then step over a small stream and walk up the hill. As you approach the top the stone comes into full view.
The stone is about 6 ft high x 4 ft x 2ft covered in yellow, white and green lichen.
The coastal views to the south are cracking – a great place for standing a stone.
This is an easy site to visit although technically there isn't any public access to the stone.
Well worth a visit when in the area.
