Standing Stone, Nr. Gignog, Pembrokeshire
Standing Stone, Nr. Gignog, Pembrokeshire
The standing stone is in a field, and behind it can be seen a wooded area, which contains the Tumulus marked on the map. I have a theory that these standing stones were used as waymarks on a route between places. A perfectly straight line can be drawn from the Settlement SM8823 past the end of a track SM8824, through the Tumulus and standing stone, to the Tump at Hayscastle Tump SM9024.
