In the village of Pentrefelin on the right hand side of the A497 when heading east.
Best place to park is a side road opposite the stone – parking on the A497 is not recommended!
The stone is very tall and narrow and ‘square like’. It has white lichen on it.

It always amazes me how standing stones manage to survive in built up areas. This is a very fine stone and well worth seeking out when in the vicinity.

The National Monument Record suggests this isn't a prehistoric standing stone.
Standing stone bearing the date 1721 with a cross, the only other inscription is the date 1778. The stone was erected in 1721.
However, the record is categorised as Period: Unknown which suggests there may be some ambiguity.
