Cerrig Caerau

Stone Circle


We parked on the small lane south of the circle near a quarry, from here its a straight forward follow the path up to the top of the hill, follow the path
via the stiles in fences and the path goes straight to Ceggig Gaerau.
All the stones are down and only eight remain, seven of which contain the southern edge of the circle and one huge stone to the north, surely any power
they once had has fled long ago . The circle over the fence Lled Croen-yr-ych is more complete but the stones here are so much bigger, one makes a perfect
bed on which to lie whilst cloud busting, the southern arc of megaliths is still quite photogenic, hollows surround each stone where sheep gather, If there was
magic here once and it's gone then i'd say its got a new kind of magic, hard to describe but there nevertheless, I'm starting to waffle slightly so, yes, it was a long
walk the stones are good go and see 'em (on a nice day)
