|Description ||Pen y Beacon (or Blaenau) Stone Circle, Powys (SO 239 373):
Marked as stone circle and sited adjacent to a car park on a minor road from Hay-on-Wye to Llanthony. This site has only recently been recognised as a stone circle: in the past it had variously been described as the remains of a cairn or burial chamber. The largest stone, on the east of the circle, is 1.5m high and 1.1m wide and has much smaller stones to either side of it which follow the arc of a circle 30m in diameter. Underneath the Ordnance Survey bench mark, a circular depression can be seen which is believed to be a cupmark, something of a rarity in this area of Wales. Four very small stones are just discernible on the opposite side of the circle with another stone to the south.
