Bodowyr (Dolmen / Quoit / Cromlech) — Miscellaneous

Looking at the photographs, things have changed since I was last there - the strip of grass leading to the stones seems to be new.
It was at this site that I bumped into a family clutching their copy of The Modern Antiquarian. They were on holiday and were visiting all the sites in the area. The bright cover of the book brought them to my attention almost immediately! I had a chat with them for a few minutes - it turned out that we had all gone to the same book signing in Manchester.

Penrhosfeilw (Standing Stones) — Fieldnotes

It's been a long time since I've visited this site, but my main memories were that is was a shame that no matter what direction you faced, you could see the modern world - farmhouse in one direction, powerlines in the other.
I do remember going there one night to try to get a photograph of the stones sillouetted against the stars. Sadly, the photo didn't come out.
