|Description ||Maen y Bardd (The Bard or Poet's Stone) neolithic burial chamber, Conwy, (GRSH740 717) is a delightful monument in an absolutely stunning area. Situated alongside a prehistoric pathway on a ridge 1.5 miles above Rowen, the difficulty in access is definitely worth the effort! It is believed to be the remains of a portal dolmen and consists of a rectangular chamber, 1.2m in height, formed by a capstone resting on four uprights. It has also sometimes been called Cwrt-y-Filiast (Kennel of the Greyhound) probably due to a legend that a giant threw his spear across the valley at his sheepdog which was sheltering in the chamber.|

|Legend has it that if you spend the nite in Maen y Bardd, you will end up either a poet or a madman! |
