Carnau Cefn-y-Ffordd



From Llanwrthwl go south west, eventually the lane turns into a track and then becomes impassable so an uphill walk is required. When youve followed the path up to a sadlle in the hills , the hills rise up to the east and west, head east past the diminutive standing stone. Just past the menhir is the first out of at least five cairns, this one is the smallest. Head uphill on the rather vague path and then the two big ones come into view. They did have shelters built into them but I pushed them in (hope they wer'nt original features) Slightly down hill is a ring shaped cairn, but I doubt it is supposed to be so as it is now only a crescent of cairn material. Down hill and towards where the valley drops down is the last cairn I found,smaller than the last three but larger than the first, ( hope that makes sense) it had a stone standing up in the middle of it, probably put up by the shelter builders, its prostrate now. postman Posted by postman
