South Wales – Crómlechs

During our first days spent in UK we decided to visit Wales. Driving in this part of Great Britain is a nightmare of Motorways, multiple lanes roads, lot of traffic, stupid roundabouts, but while arriving Wales is just a nightmare maze, plenty of narrow roads where a crash is behind almost any curve.

Father Bunny loves to drive on the wrong side of the road, so he swalloved almost 600 miles in two days with a smiling face.

On Sunday, our Car Navigation System told us we were about five hours far from home, but despite time of the day we decided to seek for a Crómlech* near Trefin.

No one knew about it, so we spent two hours and walked 3 miles along the Welsh coastline to spot it.

When we decided to return, and when Father Bunny was totally pissed off, he founded it right in from of us.

It’s located inside a sheep farm!!!!! Why they don’t just place a sign?

May be they don’t like visitors

*Cromlech is a Brythonic word (Breton/Welsh) used to describe prehistoric megalithicstructures, where crom means “bent” or “curved” and llech means “slab” or “flagstone“.[1] The term is now virtually obsolete in archaeology, but remains in use as a colloquial term for two different types of megalithic monument.

In English it usually refers to dolmens, the remains of prehistoric stone chamber tombs.[2] However, it is widely used in French and Spanish to describe stone circles. Confusingly, some English-speaking archaeologists, such as Aubrey Burl, use this second meaning for cromlech in English too.[3]
