Penrhos Feilw Standing Stones

Holyhead, Anglesey

Location Guide

Photo by Ray West 

These standing stones, accessible by a path from the road, were erected about 2000 years BC. They are of local schist and are each 3m high. They are set about 3.5m apart. Another account puts them a little later as bronze age.

There is a local story that they were the centre two stones of a stone circle and formed a stone cist containing bones, arrowheads, and spearheads.
