Cefn Gwernffrwd Row I in Mid Wales
There are eleven short single rows composed of less than 10 small and/or medium-sized stones and their distribution is very much focused on the moors of South West England and the uplands of Mid Wales. The solitary example (Garynahine, Cnoc Fillibhir Mhor) in the Western Isles may be the result of deep peat growth around the stones which were therefore originally much taller. If one discounts this anomaly, it is clear that rows of this character are found only in South West Britain. Four of the rows have a cairn at their upper end, one has a cairn and another a stone circle at their lower ends. Most are situated within close proximity to broadly contemporary archaeological sites and this may in part explain their discovery. Further information on this type of stone row is available here.
