Ancient Sites:


Penrhosfeilw Standing Stones are to be found in fields below Holyhead Penrhos Feilw Standing StonesMountain on the Isle of Anglesey. They are believed to be of the 2nd Millennium BC and I find it heartening that they have not been been damaged or  indeed toppled during the thousands of years they have stood sentinel on Holy Island.

The stones are almost 10ft, 3m, high and stand roughly the same distance apart. Some say that they are part of a more complex monument and burial chamber that has been destroyed but others insist that they have always stood alone.
