SM8907 : Liddeston "Long" Stone

near to Milford Haven/Aberdaugleddau, Pembrokeshire/Sir Benfro, Great Britain

Liddeston "Long" Stone
Liddeston "Long" Stone
The surviving stump of this standing stone is presumably an abbreviated version of its former stature - unless its name was intended ironically! Fragments of the old red sandstone of which it is formed lie crumbled around the base and it can only be a matter of time before the entire stone is weathered out of existence, or ploughed under. The situation is the crest of a hill close to two ancient fortifications and the present-day village of Liddeston. Across the valley to the west lies one of Milford's old oil refineries.
