Stone Circle


About a kilometer west of Llangelynin Church, a visit should be combined with that of Maen Penddu, indeed it should be unavoidable they are so close, about fifty yards at most.
Situated slightly above the standing stone and out of view of it, does that have any meaning I don't know.
The stones, of which I could only find five, are very small and easily lost in the heather, one of which had broken so I expertly put it back together again as best I could.
The circle is cut off on its south side by the footpath that runs past it, the map says cairn but the stones say circle, i'm going with circle as it's more exotic?
The exact siting of the stone circle if that is what it is, is a tad perplexing, it shuns views north to the Druids circle and environs, it hides over the rise from Maen Penddu, you cant even see down to the river Conwy, it is well and truly hidden amongst the hills.

I'm glad you didn't find some other amazing circle there, me and Blossom did a lot of "is this actually it?" head-scratching. It is weirdly sited too. And I keep thinking the name has a love aspect, which obviously it doesn't. "Kevin My Love". One too many Wedding Present songs listened to, probably. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat
