Maen Penddu

Standing Stone / Menhir


About one kilometer west of Llangelynin Church, it's a fair old yomp to the stone but just for company there is also a stone circle/cairn twenty yards away or so from it.
Standing between six and seven feet tall this is a very hefty stone, thin on one side and wide on the other, possibly aligned in the direction of the Maen y Bardd dolmen.
Stood next to the stone, only the view east is open, a feeling of being enclosed by the hills is felt, but gain some height on one of the numerous hillocks or quarry spoil and the views open out, from here I can see the Great orme, the Druids circle, and perhaps Hendre Weolod down by the river past Cerrig y Ddinas fort.
A short walk over the hills to the south brings you back to Caer Bach hill fort, lots of cairns and on to many splendid stones. Lead on McDuff.
