llangynidir standing stone. llwn-y-fedwen. brecknock.

a magnificent stone of erratic limestone stands 4.27 m in height, 1.42 m wide and a metre thick, on the north side of the river usk above langynidr’s mediaeval bridge. sited on a natural knoll some 60 m in length with many lose stones at its base. these can be traced for some way towards the river and might be the remains of a stone wall. it has deep horizontal grooves on one side and a covering of pronounced white lichen. the stone came to notoriety in the 1970’s when is was dowsed by bill lewis, a well known local dowser, and found to have emitted a magnetic field. this was confirmed later with the use of a magnometer although compelling this has yet to be repeated. view in instagram ⇒
