Trearddur (Glan Traeth) Standing Stone on Anglesey - an ancient monument on the island of Anglesey.

Trearddur Standing Stone(s) - Also known as Glan Traeth Standing Stone SH 267789.

In my opinion one of the easiest to find of Anglesey's ancient monuments, but pretty unspectacular as a standing stone. Nevertheless as a place to visit it is very worthwhile as it stands just yards from Trearddur Mill and is in a commanding position with nice views, as are most standing stones. I believe that these stones were located in order that wherever the hunter - gatherer people were they could always see a stone, symbols of their beliefs.

From the Holyhead direction I passed through Trearddur Bay and passed the Trearddur Bay Hotel on my left. Less than a half mile further on I came to a left turning, which is directly opposite the Capel Farm housing estate. The road from here is a single track road, so I parked my car and walked the short distance (about 300 metres) to the stone. From where I parked my car I travelled down the left hand track until I come to a fork, one way being for a farm, and the other for the mill.

On the way up the small hill track to the Mill I saw a ruined building in the field to my left, and right next to it is a stone that looks far more like an ancient standing stone than the actual one:

Within yards of that ruin I came to the Trearddur Mill, which has been tastefully converted to living accommodation:

To the left and directly opposite the mill, I saw the standing stone I had come to find, and the fine views to the sea and the mountains:
