Craig Y Llyn and Llyn Fawr
Craig Y Llyn and Llyn Fawr
This is the view looking west from the lookout point on the A4061 just to the east. Craig Y Llyn is an outcrop of rock between two lakes - Llyn Fach and Llyn Fawr. Llyn Fawr can be seen here.

Llyn Fawr has been converted from a natural lake to a reservoir. While the bottom was being dug out to increase capacity a collection of bronze and iron artefacts was found. This is called the Llyn Fawr Hoard and was possibly an offering to a deity.
Because of this important find "Llyn Fawr" has become the name for the transition period between the bronze and iron ages.
