A Scheduled Ancient Monument.

A Scheduled Ancient Monument.

An unusually large stone of hard angular rock, tapering towards the top. It stands on the top of a gentle rise but not particularly more prominent than any other around. Some probable packing stones are visible around the base where exposed by cattle trampling.

The name of the farm, Pen yr Orsedd means ‘Top of the Meeting Place’ but this probably refers to a nearby circular earthwork of unknown date, called Castell Crwn. The standing stone faces towards this enclosure.
