Identification

Category: Uncertain. The placename Trillech refers to three stones and it is certainly possible that it refers to a stone row similar to Harold’s Stone at Trelleck. However, whilst there may have been three large stones at this location it is not known whether they were in a line or perhaps formed the vesitges of a stone circle or other structure. Without any details of what existed at this location it is not possible to assign a stone row interpretation with any degree of certainty.
