Trefignath (Chambered Cairn) — Fieldnotes

Just visited the site again this Christmas, the old road has now been side stepped by a new one, there is a parking space on the new road, then you cut across grass to the old road and original entrance. No directional signs to the site are present at the time of writing. This is such a shame, as the new road seems to go to nothing, with it's lovely roundabout, very nice and new- leading to nothing, don't know what's going on here. Shame as the new road layout now seems pointless, going to an imaginary industrial estate.
I didn't see the standing stone that used to be in the field opposite.

Sarn Meyllteyrn (Standing Stone / Menhir) — Fieldnotes

There is some dispute over the authenticity of this standing stone. But It takes your breath away when you see it standing in the grave yard. The stone is over 8 feet high. It seems to be aligned with Carn Fadryn - your eye goes straight to the hill over the valley.
The hole near the top was apparently when the stone was used to hold a lantern, which leads you to believe it is an true relic, as a christian object wouldn't be used in such a flippant way.
Oh be careful parking outside the church, as I was nearly hit by a white van speeding along!

Recently Country Walking magazine had a featured walk to this site, I thought it was only accessible through permission of the Craflwyn NT warden, I contacted him and he assured me it is still only really allowed through their consent. So slapped wrists Country Walking!

Dinas Dinlle now has an official footpath to it and
an information sign, probably in the hope that it stops erosion. It seems to have brought more visitors to this fragile site.

Christopher Draper new book ' Llandudno before hotels" has covered bronze age mining on the Great Orme extensively, it well worth reading if you're interested in this area of North Wales.
