This impressive Pen yr Orsedd standing stone must stand at least 11 or 12 feet tall. In an elevated position, it commands a view far and wide. If - as I believe - these stones are memorials to early chieftains, then this was to one held in very high esteem. Named after the farm on which land it stands - or is it vice versa?.
