While the stones themselves aren't much to look at, it's their remote setting that sets them apart. There's a well / spring nearby, a historic church and also an ongoing excavation of a fortified settlement which passersby can visit during the summer. Worth a detour...More

Not easy to park near, as you have to go a few hundred meters down the road to park safely, but worth the visit. Easy access from the road through a small gate.

We love in the area and decided to look around closer to home. Clearly, this is an interesting area due to it being on the Welsh borders. If you're passing by on foot, bike or car do stop and have look around. Much more happened...More

The information board and tourist information give both facts and lore about these three stones, but the truth is no-one knows. Well worth the short walk from the pub to see them, and wonder over their origin and meaning.

I wanted to show these to my son as he has never seen standing stones before. We found the car park easily and set off on the footpath marked 'Harold's stones' but it was overgrown and impassable (particularly as we were both wearing shorts). On...More
