|Description ||Stop the car, there's a stone!
How many of us have spied something suspicious from the car, and stopped ASAP to have a look? The humour of this picture shows that tendency so well... car stopped in the middle of a lane, both doors wide open!
This stone is not recorded on any Welsh Sites & Monuments records, but we thought it a good contender for a legit standing stone. Set away from the wall (not in it), with some possible packing around the base.
South of Druid, not far from a caravan site, and north east from Caer Euni hillfort, at grid reference SJ008418.
The fence shows signs of having been climbed over - see right next to stone. We peeped over the fence from the embankment, as were heading off to investigate the Hafod y Garreg and Hafod y Dre stone rows. Already delayed by nearly getting on the A5, but finding it blocked by a North West Fuels oil tanker stuck on a bridge at Maerdy, we had to backtrack adding some 25 minutes onto the journey. At least we got to see this en route.|
|Why did you blank out the number plate? Did you steal the car?|
|I always do... just to keep some sense of privacy, especially as I am usually in someone else's car!|
|What were those futuristic cars? - de Loreans? - Imagine that abandoned in the lane with its doors open! It looks really narrow - lucky a tractor didn't come along! Nice story, made me smile.......
Hope you didn't catch anything on the barbed wire?!!!!|
|We didn't do any fence 'opping; honest, guv! No tractor, thankfully; we were only there 2 minutes, and right next to the car, so any problems we could scoot quickly. On the way along the A5 I saw a stone atop a mound; as I like to follow where I am exactly on an OS map, my hopes of something prehistoric were soon dashed as I saw a motte marked on the place concerned. With this stone I am more optimistic. What a hobby, though, eh? See a lump or bump, or stone, then you start getting excited!|
|That looks familiar! I know what you mean Tim, I do it all the time. There you are, tootling along, when you suddenly spy an errant stone in a field or hedgerow. Screeeeeeeeeech! Pile out to check it out! It's almost obsessive!|
