Troed y rhiw


A possible single stone row only known from a description in the Royal Commission Inventory. The row which has since been destroyed measured 12.2m long and consisted of 24 contiguous, edge set stones with an average height of 0.60m leading from a stone circle formed by at least 12 stones. The row was situated on a west facing slope, was orientated east to west and stood in the vicinity of a stone pair and standing stone.

Category: Possible. This site was destroyed before it could be recorded in detail and because the stones are described as contiguous the possibility should be acknowledged that this site represented a wall rather than a stone row.  For this reason is should be considered as possible at best.


This stone row is of Type S4. Information on this form of stone row and other rows of this type is available here.
