    An old haunt of mine, but a new place for Kya to explore. This huge stone stands 12 feet tall and 9 feet wide, though only 2 feet thick, high up on the mountain pass in the Brecon Beacons.

    Maen Llia is the name of the stone - there is a lot of local folklore about it, and fairies said to dwell in the area, some say that when it rains, the stone goes to the Afon Nedd, a nearby mountain river, to drink. I can debunk this though, I have spent many months around there over the past 3 years and often seen it in the rain niether moving nor drinking :Rofl1:I never saw any fairies either, but plenty of sheep and horses :Smile:
