|Description ||Capel Garmon's Gorsedd. Julian Cope, writing in The Modern Antiquarian, is convinced of the importance of the 'Gorsedd Stone', as he calls it, to the north of the narrow entrance passage to the tomb. This is the top of the hillock on which it stands (upper centre), and in the foreground are three intriguing pointed stones in a line, which may possibly have been used for sighting in the other direction. Behind me were some trees, so I crept down the bank a little to take a photo of the view to the west from here. I believe there was once a circle on this 'platform', but unsure if it was a round building or ceremonial circle. It has a commanding view across the level ground where the tomb lies. Between the tomb and the hillock there appears to be the remains of a circular building - dowsed as the dwelling of an important chief, or priest.|
