In my ignorance I didn't realise the significance of these stones; so took no images. Guess I didn't grasp the true extent of the major prehistoric complex which once - hey, still does - define these low hills of Elanydd.

Coflein quotes the following for this Bronze Age stone setting:

'Two recumbent stones NW side Gro Hill track. Stones orientated NE-SW. Largest approx. 2.5m long x 1m wide x 0.60m deep. Other stone at N corner of larger stone, approx. 2m long x 0.60m wide x 0.40m depth (RSJ 2000).'
