NOTE 25: STONE CIRCLE
On an elevated bleak flat lying between two high hills, some three miles from the village of Taliesin, and about two miles from Taliesin's Grave, in the upper part of the parish of Llangynfelyn, Cards, will be found a stone circle known in the neighbourhood as "Cylch-Derwyddol" (Druidic Circle), which, as far as I know, has not been hitherto noticed 1 . It measures about 180 feet in circumference, and consists at present of about forty stones, some of which are about half a yard above the surrounding surface while others are almost level with it. Towards Moel Llyn, which lies to the East, a considerable number of these stones appear to have been removed, for some purpose or other, as in that direction only, some three or four stones remain in a segment forming about one-fourth of the circle, and there are some gaps in the other parts; so that originally the circle would seem to have consisted of about sixty stones. This tract of ground, which is peaty and partially covered by heath, forms part of the farm called Cae'r Arglwyddes, the property of Sir Pryse Pryse, Bart. of Gogerddan.
