Its a fascinating site, however, noticed they have added wooden posts recently to try and control summer visitors, who, rather like the mighty D27, see it as an adventure playground rather than of any historical significance. At least they visit! Posted by costaexpress

Wow! What a site!
Certainly beats anything I've ever visited.

Hi ryaner, so many diverse and wonderful sites, I keep getting drawn back there, just love it.

Spencer, do you mean Levant as in the middle east?

Does anyone know if there's anything similar in the Levant? spencer Posted by spencer

See you’re channel hopping again. Other places pretend, but there is nowhere that actually rivals Brittany, is there? That flat-faced roofstone is mind-blowing. I’m envious. ryaner Posted by ryaner

And why wouldn't you have wanted to have been buried here, feel a sense of longing, something about burial sites looking out to sea Posted by costaexpress

Thank you Spencer, didn't get over to Ramsey Island but managed to see a couple of baby seals below St. Davids Head. tjj Posted by tjj

I've found something possibly quite important, OS worthy if verified, not that there's anyone to do it, by deviating from footpath a couple of miles from Arbor Low. I've read here that the farmer's the sort you and I dislike, but maybe he's well aware what's on his land and is being protective. I want to go back and have a bloody good stomp. Guess Ill probably have to make do with Google Earth or summat. spencer Posted by spencer

Guess the point of Pumlumon is this stuff's not exactly hidden... impossible with cairns of this magnitude. Much of Mid Wales is underrepresented, to be fair.... south of Pontrhydfendigaid, much of Cwmdeuddwr, unlike places such as the Lakes which seem to have been done to death. Guess that's why the farmers reckon you must be up to no good. GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN

It's not just the wildlands....even the White Peak's got nice stuff that's not been added to here or over there. spencer Posted by spencer

Yes, an area I'd like to get to know. Not very easy to get at from here though. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

Been looking at Megalithic Portal for help but there's hardly anything on there.... Pumlumon's all more-or-less virgin territory. Some of the landowners are a bit narky but just need to be stood up to. GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN

Definitely worth posting, it's a proper effort at reconstruction in an area where there are a few similar hengey sites. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

Meant to say the stones are small, the circles are in fact huge! Posted by costaexpress

Rather like Northumberlandia very much worth visiting, difficult to explain emotions when visiting a well thought out reconstruction, guilty pleasure I guess sums it up, I thought twice about posting, wasn't quite sure how I felt about it. Regardless, I returned in the evening and slept in the car park so couldn't have been to upset about it! Posted by costaexpress

Excellent, I almost went here in March but didn't have time. I looks quite groovy, a similar vibe to Balfarg Riding School. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

Well, Pumlumon is probably my favourite Welsh mountain. I reckon - taken together with its foothills, particularly those stretching toward the Dyfi - it must have the most extensive grouping of properly upland cairns in the UK. GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN
