|Description ||The view of the 3 most damaged stones - split and fallen; the other two are standing, but have had chunks knocked out of their far faces.
This circle is not destroyed, though has been considerably damaged. 3 stones remain upright, the tallest at about 4 feet, the other 2 around 2.5 feet. 2 are fallen, and 1 has been blasted apart, and unsurprisingly now lies prostrate, with a large piece missing. Diameter is around 36 feet.
Frances Lynch in her guide to Gwynedd (Conwy formed part of that county) says that there were originally nine stones here.
Including one stone that is within the ground, seven are accounted for.
One can only theorise that perhaps some large stones to the west may have once been part of the circle; additionally, some stones to the north, and some to the east appear "suspiciously related", but nothing conclusive.
Following the path from Maen Penddu to the north east, this circle can not be missed.|
