Harold's Stones (Standing Stones) — News

Mystery as landmark defaced overnight

RESIDENTS of Trellech woke up to a strange sight on Sunday morning (1st October) when their historic standing stones took on a new look.
The three stones are known as Harold’s Stones, supposedly erected by Harold, last of the Saxon kings, in commemoration of a victory over the Britons in 1063. The stones also supposedly gave the village its name, with ‘tri’ meaning three, and ‘llech,’ stone, in ancient Welsh.
But Sunday morning saw the stones clad in a white plastic with the letters L, E and S taped onto the plastic. The ‘work of art’ had been signed ‘Angel 17’ which gave no clues to the originator of the work.
Local resident Stephanie Poulter first saw them when driving by and thought to herself that some effort had been put into this.
“It was a mystery who had done this but obviously someone had gone to a great deal of effort,” she told the Beacon.
The plot thickened as by 5pm, the wrapping had vanished, taken down by someone unknown.
