Mullyash / Folklore by Rhiannon

Hadn’t been there for approx 25 years until yesterday afternoon. Apart from slippage stone, the monument has been relatively undisturbed. Remnants of the original build line remain visible to the Eastern side and it very similar to the slope of New Grange, only on approx one tenth scale.
I also viewed the Longstone some three to four hundred mentors to the south of the Cain. Forestry has been felled and the site is marked by three tree stumps approx 2.5m high.The long stone is lying with tapered end pointing South West and is broken in two. No fresh graffiti it initials have been added since 1960. There is no trace of any footprint as mentioned in Folktales gathered from local school children last centaurs.

Penshaw Hill / Fieldnotes by BrigantesNation

Hi,
Are you aware of any work done on neighbouring Herrington Hill?
I am a local resident and it has many features of earthworks, field markings and abrupt differences in gradient. There are several marks to do with a quarry and some reservoirs on the hilltop, however the features of the hill may be similar to the ring features of Penshaw. They are close to each other and also close to other features in the landscape.
Any ideas where I may find further information would be gratefully received.
Rob.

Almost unbelievable, like you I've been up so many times and from all sides, even the bigger streams Finglenny and Milduan are a helluva hike each day. drewbhoy Posted by drewbhoy

I've just read about this in the P&J.

https://www.pressandjournal.co.uk/fp/news/aberdeenshire/2203375/revealed-scotlands-largest-pictish-settlement-was-in-aberdeenshire/

I've been up there more times than I can remember, and never dreamed it was a community on this scale. I just wonder why as its quite a climb and there would be no end of sweat and toil to collect water every day!

Stanborough Camp / Fieldnotes by CARL

The ring of trees look very impressive on google, however, whether there is anything to see once inside will need a site visit to find out, looks like you would have to go right up to the farm and through to the barns into the enclosure Posted by costaexpress

Stanborough Camp / Fieldnotes by CARL

The outline of the camp is clearly visible from the trees planted around it. (Another camp, the Old Man camp, is supposed to be in the field to the south, but there's little evidence of it.) Posted by Dadge

Borough Hill / Fieldnotes by ginger tt

This supposed ancient hillfort has been known about for centuries. It's marked as a prehistoric camp on old OS maps. However in recent years experts have decided that it probably wasn't a hillfort and the OS don't put it on their maps anymore. Posted by Dadge

Have you ever wandered up from Cwm Chwefri? GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN

Carn-y-Geifr, Drum Ddu / Image by GLADMAN

I should have said that you drive up from Llanwrthll as far as the tarmac will go before it turns into a rough track, now almost impassable thanks to our offroading friends.
This is a good base for Y Gamriw and Gorllwyn too.

Carn-y-Geifr, Drum Ddu / Image by GLADMAN

I've posted a Google Earth map with one route up onto the crest. You could head South West from Drum DDu to get there too. There is a standing stone and several fine cairns on the route I've shown, plus a few hidden away further South West.
Don't take any notice of Clwyd Powys map references for these. I think they made them up in the pub.

Yeah. I was actually intending to visit those last year but my shins were a bit dodgy on the day, so diverted to Gro Hill instead.... still on the list. What was your route? GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN
