Penbedw Park Standing Stone
Penbedw Park Standing Stone submitted by TimPrevett : This stone serves as the likely outlier to the Penbedw Park Circle. It is a very large, almost square but rounded sides stone, and is intervisible from the circle, and tumulus. Permission must be obtained before visiting, as it is on private park land. The circle is behind the tree in the centre of the picture. (Vote or comment on this photo)

Penbedw Park Standing Stone submitted by Postman : Burl is suspicious of this stone like the circle, but if I were lord of the manor and asked for a standing stone, and got this, I'd want me money back, that's just a stone lump not standing stone., and I wouldn't really want it right next to the track up to the big house where any unobservant toff could crash into it.

Coflein "An erect monolith, 5'4" high by 16". Its association with the stone circle (Nprn306858) c.230m to the E may cast doubt on its antiquity."
