SN1646 : Carreg y Fendith/Ateb: Blessing/Answering stone

taken 11 years ago, near to St Dogmaels, Pembrokeshire/Sir Benfro, Great Britain

Carreg y Fendith/Ateb: Blessing/Answering stone
Carreg y Fendith/Ateb: Blessing/Answering stone
This stone, probably the capstone from a prehistoric burial chamber, was traditionally the spot where the Abbot of St Dogmaels blessed the fishing fleet each year. It lies just a few yards above the river at Netpool. Its alternative name derives from the fact that if you stand on it and shout an echo bounces back from the opposite bank.
It was only rediscovered in 1960 and has been given a little alcove of its own in the bank below the Teifi Inn.
