Maen Dewi
Maen Dewi
Dewi's Stone is a massive, roughly lozenge-shaped, standing stone to be found (on private land) behind an isolated dwelling on Dowrog Common. It supports a profuse coating of lichen.
The name of the stone, which presumably relates to St David, is likely to have been historic attribution by monks or pilgrims who would have found this a valauble landmark or stopping place when crossing the moor in darkness or in mist.
On the OS Pathfinder map the name Drws Gobaith (Door of Hope) is given to this spot so too might represent to the traveller their proximity to the sacred shrine at St David's a couple of miles to the southwest.
