Moel Ty Uchaf
Moel Ty Uchaf submitted by DJMace : Very nice example of a cairn circle in a spectacular location and well worth the hike. A straight walk up the hill along a rough track after passing through two metal gates. Continue on up and the circle is on left hand side. You won't be disappointed. (Vote or comment on this photo)
The cairn-circle of Moel Ty Uchaf stands high on a hill near Llandrillo. It consists of 41 stones with a cist in the centre and an outlying stone to the north-north-east.

According to Burl it is ‘almost perfect’.

So at 10.30am Chris from CADVAS (Corwen and Dee Valley Archaeological Society) led a walk up to the cairn circle. The rain had stopped, although the fords crossing the track were fast and full. At the circle, Chris shared out mince pies and described the winter sunrise...

    According to my laws, any stone circle is permanently open to anyone wishing to use the sacred space for a handfasting. Nobody owns them but us...

Winter Solstice Walk Moel Ty Uchaf Stone Circle Sunday 21 December by Andy B on Friday, 28 November 2014
(User Info | Send a Message)
Corwen and Dee Valley Archaeological Society write:
One of our favourite places ,high above the beautiful landscape of the Dee Valley is the stone Circle Moel Ty Uchaf. Meet at Hendwr Bridge at 11.30 . Suitable footwear and outdoor clothing is essential.

OS reference :SJ 05613717. The circle consists of 41 surviving stones and is around 12 meters across.

Moel Ty Uchaf is thought to date to the Bronze Age . It is presumed that the monument was the focus for significant ceremonial and ritual activity . Lack of evidence from any excavations on the monument hamper further analysis , however the surrounding landscape reveals possible funerary monuments in the form of at least two cairns and at least four possible cists. A platform is clearly identifiable down slope south of the stone circle

The raised , circular platform cairn identifiable as belonging to the Bronze Age . It is around 16 metres in diameter and may have once consisted of a ring bank of stone with a surrounding kerb . At some point the centre of the cairn was filled with stones to form a level platform . These monuments are thought to be ceremonial/ritual and sometimes funerary monuments . In other areas excavations have revealed cremations have been placed within the circles and then covered by the platforms at sometime in the history of the monument .

CPAT have produced a detailed walk around the area which takes in most of the sites which we will be visiting in the future .Details can be found at this link (PDF)

Re: Moel Ty Uchaf by Anonymous on Sunday, 21 October 2012
There appears to be a second stone circle, about 60 metres South South-East at the bottom of a short incline down from the plateau where the main Moel Ty Uchaf circle lies. It is quite clearly a circle with different texture to the surrounding grasses when viewed from the plateau. It is also evident on Google Maps' satellite view:

http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?ll=52.923039,-3.40493&spn=0.001451,0.004128&t=h&z=19

Grass has covered most of the circle and it is not obvious. However, many stones are still visible. There are a large number of white quartz stones. The inside of the circle is not cleared and seems to contain more stones or other debris, again with grass covering much of it.

I get the feeling this a genuine stone circle and not just a place where a farmer has dumped some rocks. It seems unnaturally circular. Does anyone have any awareness of this second circle?

I'm considering the possibility of taking a spade up and trying to clear away some of the grass that's covered the stones. Would that be frowned upon by any quarters?

    Re: Moel Ty Uchaf's second 'circle' by AngieLake on Monday, 22 October 2012

    Hello Bob

    I saw it during a visit a few years ago, and found that Burl had written about it being the surrounding quartz stones of a cairn. We have two pictures (poss more, I only looked for my own!) on this site page - here's a link to one:
    http://www.megalithic.co.uk/modules.php?op=modload&name=a312&file=index&do=showpic&pid=22140
    and the other photo is below it.

    You need to scroll down to the last photo showing on the site page, then click on the link to 'more photos' (than the 25 showing), and you will see the total collection posted here.

    I'd actually dowsed a route from the main circle which passed near this one on the way to what I think is a destroyed cairn in the level ground below there.
    (PS: When the link to that photo is open, you could click on the links above it, ie: 'next photo', then 'previous photo' to see a view of the 2nd 'circle' from above, and the 'destroyed cairn' or 'tomb' I just mentioned.)

I took a farm track, instead of the footpath, not intentionally. Heather, as lovely as it is, is quite demanding to walk through, heading up the hill. I wish I could work out just where i got to, never found Moel ty Uscaf. The wood by its SE has gone. I think. On my SW descent of the hill I passed a tumulus, a number of groups of boulders, one had a amount of quartz [clearly disturbed and piled up in sheep fields]. And a couple of structures, disturbed, with some wall remains built into the hillside.

certainly has a strange, unwelcoming almost forbidding energy about this circle.
A definate treck to find it!
Worth it in the end? Well if you have gps would be easier & you may be able to find the cairns around it (we didn't) It is almost a complete circle, interesting to see so probably is.
Take plenty of water as its a good steep walk up there.
We made an offering in the circle, not sure whether it was accepted, didn't 'feel' like it!!

UFO files from National Archive allow believers to revisit 'Welsh Roswell' by Andy B on Thursday, 05 August 2010
(User Info | Send a Message)
Reports of 1974 'explosion' from declassified papers show Ministry of Defence struggled to explain Llandrillo incident

UFO enthusiasts called it the "Welsh Roswell" and insisted that one evening in 1974 an alien craft crashed in north Wales and the government secretly removed dead extraterrestrial bodies, the latest files from the National Archives reveal today.

The documents describe how residents of Llandrillo in Merionethshire, near the Berwyn mountains, first reported strange lights streaking across the sky. Then as the night wore on the villagers heard a colossal explosion and felt a tremor ripple through their homes.

Later ufologists claimed roads were sealed off and people kept away from the site after the incident on 23 January 1974. Alien bodies were then taken to Porton Down biological warfare centre for analysis, it was claimed, prompting the comparisons with Roswell, the 1947 incident in which, conspiracy theorists claimed, the US military recovered an alien spacecraft in New Mexico – the story that gave birth to 60 years of ufology, movies and all.

The latest batch of UFO files show how experts at the Ministry of Defence (MoD) initially struggled to explain the Llandrillo incident. A search and rescue team from RAF Valley, on Anglesey, was scrambled in response to the reports of an explosion and a large fire on the mountainside. Some witnesses described seeing a "bright red light, like a coal-fire red. Large perfect circle. Like a big bonfire. Could see lights above and to the right and white lights moving to bottom."

Although the police and the RAF team began their search within an hour of the incident nothing was found. The search carried on through the night until it was called off just after 2pm the next day. The MoD file released today shows the authorities did receive "a number of reports of an unusual object seen in the sky just before 10pm on the evening in question". The officials conceded that a bright light apparently descending to the earth's surface was seen in many parts of Britain.

I climbed up to this circle on a beautifully squally day this October. I began at the chapel but went south first of all up an old track that wound its way up the hill through forested land and then swung back north towards the circle across several fields. One field that is two away from the circle has numerous large stones in some random scattering, together with a lovely small barrow. It was raining on and off and the rainbows were superb. The circle itself was stunning, and the views marvelous.
I went down the "proper" track, thick with hawthorn bushes at their reddest. You notice the other tracks going up as well, and the old walls sometimes lined with large flat stones. One large stone lying casually beside the track was clearly formed by hand - whether prehistoric or not it is difficult to say, but certainly suspicious.
Then on to Tyfos, where the circle is harder to access as other people have noted. But with your back to it you look straight up to Moel ty Uchaf. Wonderful day. I'll try and post some photos.

Re: Moel Ty Uchaf by Anonymous on Sunday, 29 March 2009
Hello there, the site is easy to access from Llandrillo. Take the road between the chapel and the Ganolfan at the Corwen end of the village. You can drive part way up this or, if you like, park in the village and walk up. About half a mile up the road you can park and the road becomes a track, there's a gate to go through. You then follow the track as it meanders up hill, through streams and through gates until a last gate gives you the option of going on, going left down a steep road or going right up another track. Go right. This track takes you uphill through open countryside. Again, unless you're used to hill walking it can take a bit of puff to get up. On your left as you go up the track is an open field which climbs to a rounded hill top. Atop this hill and a little to the left is the stone circle. I'd advise keeping on the track until you're round the back of the hill top because the going is less steep on that side as you make your way up to the stone circle. It's well worth the effort, the view from the top is very beautiful.

As for whether the circle is friendly or not, I can only tell you that I live beneath these stones and have been there many times over the years. As I climb the hill I have a sense of increasing excitment as though I'm going to meet somebody. When I arrive I always have a sense that they were there a moment ago. The sense is so strong that I often wonder if I've just missed other walkers, but there's seldom anyone about. The circle seems to hold the energy of all it's ever known and every foot that ever trod there. I know it holds my energy too each time I leave and that it knows me when I return, as I do it. There is a strong sense that it's waiting, but for what, I don't know. I wait too, each time I visit.

Hi i was just wondering how easy it was to access the site? do you have to go over privet land etc? also approximately how long does it take to walk from the village to the site?

if anyone could answer this swiftly it would be appreciated as i am considering studying this site for my degree.

thanks

Following comments on this site page about the unpleasant aura some have found here, thought you'd be interested in a Channel Five programme at 8pm tomorrow (2nd July 2008), regarding a mysterious 'UFO' incident in the Berwyn mountains near Llandrillo in 1974. They're calling it 'The Welsh Roswell'!
Quote:
"The Government is said to have covered up 1974's event in North Wales, where scores of residents reported a massive tremor, strange lights in the sky and secret-service-style 'men in black' scouring the area.
It has been dubbed the 'Welsh Roswell' after the famous U.S. case in which aliens were allegedly found by authorities in New Mexico.
UFO believers claimed aliens crash-landed in the Berwyn mountain range and their bodies were transported by the MoD to top-secret Wiltshire research base Porton Down."

I've visited the site on several occasions and only ever received "good" vibes from this place. The very first time I came across the stone circle it was like being transported to the dawn of time itself.
Whilst the stones themselves aren't particularly awe inspiring the setting is on a truly monumental scale and the sense of history and continuity with the past is quite profound.
On my last visit on Jan 2006 I made an offering of half a weetabix and a can of beer poured from a plastic bottle. The beer was eagerly accepted!

We had a cracking time here; had a long summer picnic over 5 years ago now when my son was just 19 days old. A memorable location and one I'd love to get back to. Some sites do give different 'vibes' to folk, and maybe as much to do with the site, the time of year, etc as well as what the visitor 'brings' with them. I've got the willies at some places, but this is not one of them.

Bad feelings eminating from this place.

NOTE: This is only the second stone circle I have visited.

There's a large stone nearby with what appear to be two carved cups... we sat on this to rest on the way up, and I had to get off immediately because of the intense feeling of malevolence it emitted. I never knew I was that perceptive... maybe it was just my imagination, but unlike Druid's circle near Penmaenmawr, where I felt "welcomed" this place repelled me.

The circle is almost complete, with small, closely placed tooth shaped stones. Some of the missing stones have been replaced with smaller, round rocks. The feeling within the circle, though dimished, is still not pleasant. We didn't hang round long.
