The Giant's Grave (Morvah)

Natural Rock Feature

The Giant's Grave (Morvah) (Natural Rock Feature) by thesweetcheat We didn't go to look for the Giant's Grave, but we did come across this interesting slab propped up next to the entrance of Merthyr Farm, Morvah. It has a central basin, which might suggest an intention to use it in a press or as a millstone.

That's a big old chunk of stone. I fear it's got the flavour of a half-made millstone now. But before that indignity was thrust upon it, it was still massive. That grid reference in the wrong place I see, going by the story. I'll get it moved it a bit so it's west of that track. Is the farm in the village, then? It can't have been far away from a tempting selection of giant's grave rocks. Rhiannon Posted by Rhiannon
