Stone Circles

Post by Bullet Magnet »

This Stone Circle is high up in the mountains just outside of Llandrillo heading back towards Corwen.

11235

The weather was wet, and cold, and windy, as usual.. :|

I have no idea about it's history, but I decided to go there yesterday and also spend some time in the Village and do some reminiscing..
..And have a nice Gammon steak and eggs at the Dudley Arms.... :eat

There is another Circle on the other side of the Village, and I will visit that next time.

This one has 43 stones around it's circumference and 11 flat stones at it's entrance..

It's a hard climb up there, as I discovered on my first visit, having walked all the way from Llandrillo village.
But this time, I managed to get the old Vectra most of the way up the mountain and abondon it on some grass verge as the hill got too steep to gain any more traction..
Thus only leaving me with a 45 minute walk up the hillside. :cg

The views are tremendous from up there, miles and miles of scenery and the Berwyn Mountains, and Moel Famaue in the far distance. the river Dee can be seen on the other side of the valley..

I often wonder what these were all about..
just like Caergwrle castle which I can see from my back door and Castell Dinas bran..
One OBVIOUS and natural thing missing from these structures that would make them feasible to be a castle..
more obvious when you actually get there... (dwr)

Caer means "Fort" in Welsh FYI..

Now you would know there are no crops grown down in the Valley Doctor,
it's all animal pasture land down there, feeding the sheeps.. :cg

Its the Views once you are up there...

The Escarpment at Llangollen.

11239



The evening mist rolling in over Berwyn Mountains, quite surreal.. :cool:

11240



And then the View back towards my home town and Chester..

11238


If you know exactly where to look, you can see Valle Cricis Abbey..


This is quite a view, taken from the walls of the castle... vertigo anyone ? :cg

11241

Not bad, all in all, well worth the meander up there...
