Cefn Maen Amor

Stone Circle


Cefn Maen Amor stone circle has absurdly small stones, no higher than 1 foot, and easily lost under the bilberry and heather. Marked on OS maps as a cairn just to the north west of Maen Penddu standing stone, on a higher track, this is situated on a flat area, just beneath the highest terrain (as many circles are).

Locating it was a matter of careful map reading, and looking for conspicuous bumps to the north of the track. After some work with my boots, I was able to make visible the stones that could easily be made visible.

Some five stones were visible in the end, with a sixth looking like an errant natural stone. I could feel probably another stone under the ground in line with the others.

The circle is there, but not as grand as one may have hoped!
