Penrhos Feilw Standing Stones

The mystery of 4000-year-old stones

Stand in awe beside two stones that date back to the Bronze Age at Penrhos Feilw Standing Stones.

Hear the birds singing while the wind blows through your hair and you appreciate this peaceful moment in an ancient place.

Nobody quite knows how these impressive stones came to be here or what they were used for - it's been said they were once part of a stone circle and there was a grave in between them but no evidence of this has ever been found.

Feel the mystery as you place your hand on the cold stones - they've faced all kinds of weather and seen many generations come and go.
