Penbedw Stone CirclePenbedw Park Stone Circle

The circle is approximately 40 metres in diameter. There were originally eleven stones but only 4 stones remain - the missing stones have been replaced with long established oak trees. The largest remaining stone is 1.5 metres high, and 1.0 metres wide.
There is an outlying standing stone 250 metres due West of the main circle. A well preserved round barrow or tumulus lies 500 metres to the North.  
It is believed to be the only one of its kind in North East Wales and some authorities believe it dates from the Bronze Age (2000 - 1250 BC), while others believe it is a fake.


Directions:    [ Map of Penbedw Stone Circle location  ]
The Penbedw Circle can be seen from the main A541 Mold - Denbigh road, approx. 5 miles from Mold and 8 miles from Denbigh. There is a lay-by on the A541 a few hundred yards past the left fork that leads to Cilcain. The circle is on private land but it can be seen from the road near the lay-by or walk back to the Cilcain junction and walk up the minor road for a hundred yards and the circle is visible from a field gateway. Incidentally the minor road leads to the hillfort known as Moel Arthur.
