Site Description


The standing stone between Bod Deiniol and Glan-Alaw is a massive standing stone or erect slab, 2.6m high, 2.0m wide and 0.5m thick. A standing stone such as this may be a prehistoric ritual or ceremonial monument, most likely of the Bronze Age. However a more recent date and more mundane function cannot be rulled out.
