Arthur's Stone
Arthur's Stone
A close-up of Arthur's Stone. It's said to weigh more than 25 metric tonnes and legend states that it appeared here when Arthur was walking in Llanelli and stopped to take a stone out of his shoe. He threw it away and it landed here... big boots. It's far more likely that this is a glacial erratic, left here as a glacial deposit at the end of the last ice age.

It's believed to have been first photographed around 1856 John Dillwyn Llewelyn who invented Oxymel, a turning point in photography.
