|Description ||The Three Leaps SH528784
Visited Friday 22nd September 2000
Just east of Pentraeth; off B5109 Pentraeth to Beaumaris Road. These three stones were in a quagmire of a field when I visited shortly after several days of unusually heavy rain (even for Anglesey 2 inches in 24 hours!). The Three Leaps are visible over a wall decorated with barbed wire; and The Three Leaps is somewhat of a misnomer The Three Hardly Visibles would be more appropriate! If anything, the stones are no more than knee high, if that! As I could not gain access to view them close up, I could not tell. (I would likely have needed waders though, as the field was visibly water logged!). Given the prominent wording on OS maps I was expecting something a little more grand!|
| To be perfectly honest I am not sure I can see them at all! Could you provide a version with red arrows marking the spot? I think I can possibly see a triangular one on the right of the picture, and a another in the centre of the picture which is just a low dark shape - but where is the third? Or perhaps I am wrong about those two ?|
| Maybe we need to give some sort of training sessions on spotting tiny little old stones. After the basics, we could set people loose on Exmoor, with the final test perhaps being to find the Madacombe|
stone row !!!!
