What were standing stones used for?
The Tregwehelydd Standing Stones overlooking the picturesque Afon Alaw were thought to have been erected during the Bronze Age, potentially for ritual observance, but it’s not known for certain why they’re here.
You’ll see after centuries in this spot that the stones are now split into three segments, held together by iron belts and bolts.
Spend a few moments rolling out a picnic blanket and take in the breathtaking views across this remote sanctuary with a flask of steamy coffee.
A short drive for a spectacular lunch
Soaking in all the gripping history at Tregwehelydd Standing Stones will likely lead to some rumbling tummies. Now is a good time to wander back to the car through the gorgeous country scenery.
Just a six-minute drive away on nearby London Road Valley is the delightful Catch 22 Brasserie - a modern twist after exploring centuries worth of history. We recommend ordering their Welsh 10oz chargrilled steak as a hearty feast.
Maybe something lighter is more to your fancy? Take a bite out of the goat cheese croquettes and deep-fried calamari.
If you’re with your partner or a friend, why not share a bottle of Beatnik White Zinfandel Rosé or a Castillo Clavijo Rioja, or perhaps a large serving of their delicious hot chocolate is more to your liking?
