Cadw now informed

Hi Cerrig, are the new incisions definitely new?

I read a PDF from 2005 on Archwilio the other day and this mentioned the initials 'TD' carved into Maen Llia. It only mentioned one however.

I'll see if I can copy and paste the quote if I get a chance..
Edit.. Here's what it actually says on the page for the stone,

"A very large and impressive standing stone, aligned N-S, measuring c.3.65m high x 2.75m wide x 0.75m thick. Its base is surrounded by a hollow of sheep scour. Graffiti visible on the west face of the stone includes a date of 1860 and 'G HAY, ID, LC', whilst on the east face is 'TD'. The stone is situated on the west side of a valley, to the south of a col, and its siting affords views down the valley to the south. There is depth of peat up to 0.5m in close proximity to the stone. (CPAT 2004)"

(I'm just really hoping it's not another idiot round here...)
