Obelisk, central Caerphilly
Viewed across Cardiff Road, with Caerphilly Castle in the background.
The spike-like obelisk is 13 metres (about 42 feet) high, in two distinct parts. Its base is honed yorkstone, a type of sandstone, (sedimentary rock). The upper half is a perforated stainless steel plate on a structural frame. Internal lights turn the obelisk into a beacon at night.
