|Description ||Skomer, July 2008. Visitors to Skomer can follow 'historic' trails as well as nature ones - a leaflet is available at the landing point. |
This reminds visitors that Skomer will have been joined to the mainland until the sea level rose following the end of the latest glaciation...and also that there is 'exceptional evidence of an Iron age farming community that may have numbered up to 200 people.'
| Another great pab shot. Thanks for taking us there. You were lucky with the weather.|
| Thanks Angie - I hadn't realised until today that the stone is also visible on a clear day from the coastal path on the mainland - much cheaper and less choppy according to Mrs PAB. By the way, for anyone wanting to get their bearings, the island peeping through just to the right of the menhir is Skokholm.|
