    Is that door carved into the tree or is it stuck on?

    Tbh I am assuming its added to the tree, its the first time I have been to these woods and saw it. I thought it was brilliant then noticed the 2 glazed windows up the trunk of the tree. (First picture shows them all be it poor quality. I may go back and get better photos)

    To be fair I dont know their name. They're not far from me, recently moved to Suffolk. Only just discovered them but they seem very popular with dog walkers from what Ive seen so far, I have not spent more than 30 minutes there yet.

    There be a weird feeling, atmosphere up there with the so called blue stones. I was contemplating the distance, whilst sat on the stone table. I'd like to believe that they man hauled them, but my head tells me it was glaciation. Besides the fact that the preseli site would have been a much better location, setting. I gather there was already a huge community at both areas, why cart then all the way to Wilshire?

    Perhaps that feeling tapped into their psyche too? And that drove them to move them there but I guess we will never really know.

    Indeed. So many things lost to time and neglect.

    Came across this grumpy stone fellow whilst walking close to bodelwyddan castle. Blew some cobwebs away after man flu torment.

    Forgot to say it looked very much like a burial cairn, stone tomb. Not listed on the map, but I'll check coflein when I get home.

    My feelings confirmed by this info from coflein.

    PARC BACH MEGALITHIC STRUCTURE AND SUMMER HOUSE

    A peculiar 'megalithic' structure set on a low hillock overlooking and to the W of Dolbadarn Castle.
    It is primarily defined by two large orthostatic slabs set parallel to each other some 3m apart forming two sides of a square structure which has low pillars at each corner. Contiguous with the NE corner pillar is a larger 2m high squarish 'standing stone'. Numerous other blocks lie scattered about and the whole area is raised some 0.5m above the surrounding hillside.

    The site was partially excavated by P.Crew in 1976. 19thC pottery was found in a primary context. The structure had a paved slate floor and a simple branch roof. All this was felt to be consistent with local information indicating that the structure was used as a summer house as recently as the 1920s. However, it was also felt to be too crude to have been a Victorian folly. There was so much similarity with certain Irish early Christian sites that an earlier origin is suspected, reuse following in the 19thC.

    Yeah, that would have been great. The site has masses of atmosphere. Good area for stealth camp.

    Different angle. Now looks like a one eyed ET.
