Carreg Waun Llech

Standing Stone / Menhir


Tall, tapering monolith (2.3m tall), leaning slightly to the east, with a "wafer-like" appearance. Set in an open moorland landscape surrounded by many other bronze age cairns and standing stones. Lies just to the west of the road and is easily accessible.

"Llech" translates as "slab" in English, "waun" is "moor", so Stone Slab on the Moor is an approximate is rather dull translation of the name.
