Standing Stone / Menhir


To those in the know this is a very easy stone to find, as its just a few feet from the road built into a wall, but in years gone by this nine foot monolith has been slowly covered in ivy, I like ivy a lot, just not on me stones.
But i'm pleased to say that its been cleared and cleaned up a lot, almost the whole stone is now visible excepting the highest part of the stone, this obviously was too high for our heroic gardener, as the stone wears a full and not unattractive bufon. Mynydd Bodafon with it's secret stone is large and brooding on the northern horizon, and I wonder if these three stones were set up here to pay service to the recumbent fugure outlined so nicely at Carreg Leidr.
My daughter Phillippa wanted the stone to be known as mushroom head !!!
She didnt know how close she was.
