Stony Littleton (Long Barrow) — Fieldnotes

Stoney Littleton Long Barrow is a quiet, peaceful site. It is now open and all the 'renovation' work has been completed. I'd say they've done a fair job, although there are a few metal bracing joists visible.
Take a torch when you visit this's VERY dark inside.......especially when it is sunny takes some time for your eyes to readjust to the dark.

Trefignath (Chambered Cairn) — Fieldnotes

Passing this site last week on the train, there is a new by-pass at the foot of the slope, between Trefignath and the aluminium works.
The standing stone Maen Hir is literally within metres of this by-pass. This new road has been built across the whole of Anglesey. Another scar.

Y Meini Hirion (Stone Circle) — Fieldnotes

When I set off from Llanfairfechan the weather was glorious....... the climb was long and steady and I was in a bit of a sweat by the time I reached the North Wales Path!
Looking back across the stunning view of the Lavan Sands (Traeth Lavan) to Beaumaris the rain clouds were sweeping in.
It is really wild up here....... and so is the weather! Had to shelter from the rain under the walls. If I hadn't met this couple returning from the Druid's Circle who pointed out the direction, I would have missed the circle. It is up and over the brow of a slope. When the low clouds passed, the view was overwhelming. From this vantage point above Penmaenmawr, you look down on the Great Orme. I took loads of photos........hope they all turn out OK!
