SH6419 : Cerrig y Cledd (The Swordstones)

taken 11 years ago, near to Caerdeon, Gwynedd, Great Britain

Cerrig y Cledd  (The Swordstones)
Cerrig y Cledd (The Swordstones)
A large natural stone, apparently split in two, each seemingly bearing half the imprint of a sword within the rock.
Cerrig y Cledd means "Stones of the Sword." Attributed to Arthurian legend, and may lend reason as to the naming of the stone circle a little to the west, "Cerrig Arthur". This is through dense woodland to the north of Cerrig y Cledd (South), which is for the determined to access and work out.
This shot shows the imprint on the top stone, the other stone is lying down adjacent to it.
