Cilgwythwch (Standing Stone / Menhir)

According to Eric Jones who I believe must be a local

" This is one of a number of standing stones in the area. All are Victorian Follies, erected on the summits of knolls and drumlins of his estate by General Sir Hugh Rowlands V.C of Plastirion SH5262. As children we were taught that old 'Syr Huw' added another stone each time he won a battle."

Although the RCAHMW believe one of them to be authentic
Lucky to live at the base of Moel Faban in the lovely Gwynedd countryside.
