Shop Farm (Standing Stone / Menhir)

Surfice to say that its owner was quick to point out that this was just a rubbing stone or cattle. He did say however that he had a similar stone some 4 fields away to the north-west. Yes this other stone is comparable in size and shape. It's always worth approaching the landowner for permission to visit the stones, as they often provide some insight into the history or folklaw of the stone, true they may suggest that it's just a rubbing stone, but usually you can see by the typical shape, east-west alignment, packing stones around the base, quartz crystals etc etc that these stone pre-dates any animal husbandry concerns! 06/09/06

Stanley Mill (Standing Stone / Menhir)

Just to confirm it is the white undressed stone standing some 10m north of the old windmill. Not sure what the standing stone next to the ruined building is, but it is typical of the Anglesey stones being broad and thin. If you are inclined to climb over the fence behind the building is a narrow track/green lane which leads to a field perhaps 30m away. At the end is another "standing stone" forming the gatepost. 6/9/06
