Dolmen de Kercadoret (Dolmen / Quoit / Cromlech) — Fieldnotes

Took us a while to find this one.. we parked in a street called Les Mimosas and were given directions by 2 very friendly locals. You walk behind the houses along a little cycleway. Once you get to some allotments on your left, the dolmen is on the right across a field. Depending on what is growing in the field it may be hard to spot. But its there and its smashing :-)

Bryn Celli Ddu (Chambered Cairn) — Fieldnotes

In many ways a fantastic site, but it seemed a bit processed to me somehow... Maybe it was the iron gate that had been added to the entrance for no apparent reason, or maybe it was just 'cos I saw so much good stuff beforehand (Bodowyr & Trefignath) that I got spoilt. Why move a bit of a monument to a museum? The original stone surely looks better in its own setting than in a glass case.

Glandwr Churchyard (Standing Stone / Menhir) — Fieldnotes

Not sure if this is already described somewhere within another site (couldn't find it). The stone stands just in at the edge of a churchyard in a tiny village near the Preseli mountains. The Ogham markings are really clear on the left hand side, although less so in the photograph. Spotted right on the very edge of the OL135 map and well worth a look.

Cerrig Meibion Arthur (Standing Stones) — Fieldnotes

As Merrick says, the field is very boggy and I was there on a dry day. Makes sense when you look at the map - 4 springs converge in the area. The image taken from the road shows its just a hop, skip and a jump to the stones. It is, but wear wellies and watch out for some seriously spiky foliage...
One of the stones has amazing orange lichen unlike any I've seen before.
