Following along on the same road as Cerrig cross over a cattle grid. The stone is just after this on the left hand side of the road. You can see the top of the stone over the field wall
There is a farm gate which wasn't locked, so easy access.
Lovely big thin stone. I liked it.

It lies to the NW of the road just N of the cattle-grid and the fence running off to the NW.

Coflein description: "Standing stone 2.2m high, 0.9m wide and 0.4m thick at the base. An earthfast stone is visible on the W side."

Sensigl or Senigl means 'Ox-eye daisy'. But the field looks a bit devoid of them in the photos. Maybe there's some further up the hill. Rhiannon Posted by Rhiannon
