The dog stone
On Mynydd Varteg Fawr, this is a memorial to Carlo a beloved setter that was accidentally shot on 12th August 1864. The black pillar on the left gives the details and the close-up is here SO2506 : The dog stone. Whether the groups of stones or the memorial is what is known as "the dog stone" is unclear.
Most of the square consists of similar moorland, dropping towards Varteg to the south-east.
