Stones In Sepia

By woodini254    
Gors Fawr Stone Circle, Nr Mynachlog-ddu, Pembrokeshire.

The circle consists of a 22 metre ring of sixteen low stones and although their height gradually rises towards the south of the circle the tallest stones only reach about 1.4 metres in height. As a consequence the site sits fairly inconspicuously in the modern landscape as it probably did when it was constructed either in the late Neolithic or early Bronze Age. There is a suggestion that an entrance existed on the eastern side of the circle while two fallen outlying stones, one a little further east and one to the west may have been related to the circle.
At a distance of 134 metres to the northeast are a pair of standing stones - one of which is known locally as the 'Dreaming Stone' - that may have been physically linked to the circle by a stone avenue.

The panorama was a good idea to capture all the stones - difficult when the stones are so small to get a good image.
