This is the most impressive of the stones, the 'southern stone'. It is about 10 ft high.

The date is estimated at c.2000 B.C.

Bwlch y Ddeufaen Location



A view of the Conwy Valley near the standing stones.


The pass,
Bwlch y Ddeufaen, is marked by two very fine standing stones that I have pictured here.. There are two smaller uprights close to the northern stone, and a series of small stones emerging from the peat a short distance east of the southern stone.


This is the other big standing stone. The 'northern stone' about 6ft high.



This stone is not from 'bwlch y ddeufaen', but is a mile back down the lane and is another view of the standing stone near
Maen y Bardd.



A few more pictures of the site.
