Ty Mawr (Standing Stone / Menhir)

Visited : 17/08/06

Got here after Trefignath just down the road, and this is a delight. As we got out of the car there were the first drops of rain from an all-day threatened storm. The same storm engulfed us whole as we left & drove down the A55.

There's an unmowed circle around the stone with some iron posts to guide the mower. Further out are some short stakes, painted red and with numbers on. These follow a partial circle around the stone. Didn't see whether they extend all the way round. Has there been a survey done? There's now some blue mesh plastic half buried in the ground around the stone. Maybe to help reduce erosion.

The long grass puts the stone in a better setting especially when viewed with the Alu plant behind you.
Wide awake on the Wirral.

Right, here goes. I've long been a reader of this site & a long time visitor to the main HH site & a Copefan for many years (in fact that's me and my pal Will shaking JC by the hand on the Dark Orgasm inner photo! At the Bristol Brain Donor gig in Sept 2005. Heck It was my 40th !)
