Pen-y-Gelli (Cairn(s)) — Fieldnotes

Visible from the B4366 between Carnarfon and Bethel in the middle of a corn field.

Garth Standing Stone (Standing Stone / Menhir) — Fieldnotes

Travelling North from Carnarfon on the A487, leave for the B4547. Just after you go under the A487 turn right. As you drive uphill, try to keep an eye behing you to the right. The stone will be visible in a field. Access to this field seems impossible, though.

Spetisbury Rings (Hillfort) — Fieldnotes

As you drive through Spettisbury from the North, look out for a right turning which has a railway bridge going over it. Park on the left under the bridge and walk up the hill, turning into the field where the public footpath is. Taking great care of the rather large bull, the ring appears ahead of you.

Poxwell (Cairn circle) — Fieldnotes

One of those sites where you wish you'd taken a scythe with you - the centre of the ring is waist high in nettles. Nevertheless, there are superb views out towards sea.

The best thing to do is to park at the farm entrance (as marked on the OS maps), walk up the hill and turn left just as you exit the wood, through the ditch and up the hill. You can't miss it.

Llangristiolus (Standing Stone / Menhir) — Fieldnotes

Turn off of the A5 onto the A5114. Turn right after 1/4 mile down a farm track to Lledwigan farm. The stone lies in the middle of a field behind the farm just after the track bears right. Access to the field is by climbing over a large iron gate. With a dodgy knee, an anxious looking bull, and no farmer to ask, I unfortunately couldn't get close enough to take a decent photo. Difficult to get depressed about this when Bryn Celli Ddu is the next location on my list!!

Little Meg (Stone Circle) — Fieldnotes

Looking rather overgrown (and there is some evidence that the farmer has maybe interfered with the stones?).

Tan-y-Coed (Chambered Cairn) — Fieldnotes

Visible from the B4401 between Llandrillo and Cynwyd. You need to jump a couple of gates and avoid the chickens to see it closely (had there been a farmer I would have asked). One of those sites where you're not fully convinced you've actually found the genuine article and not a random capstone-like piece of rock.

Branas Uchaf (Chambered Tomb) — Fieldnotes

Quite visible from the road, a pleasant spot. Just a few hundred yards from the Tyfos Cairn Circle between Llandderfel and Cynwyd.
