Penanty-isaf gallery grave site

Another satellite image from Apple Maps -- this time showing the Penanty-isaf gallery grave, just to the south of the two prominent hawthorn trees and to the east of the farm which gives the site its name.

What's the location of this site please Brian - and the Banc Llwydlos one please - we have a listing for an Ancient Village Settlement but I'm not sure if it's the same one

I think the aerial views your're looking at are also available at Bing Maps - click on the second blue aeroplane from any of our site pages - and see also the square grey icon for LIDAR (if available)

Andy -- Penanty-isaf grid ref SN095338. There is lots more info on my blog, if you use the search box.
The settlement site is different -- there are probably at least a dozen prehistoric features in this one small area.

Banc Llwydlos cromlech is approx SN088332.

Yes, Bing images are great too. Thanks for the handy link on your site!

Andy -- if you want to use any of my images on your site, you're very welcome. Just acknowledge source please.

The area around Banc Llwydlos and Brynberian Moor has suddenly become very popular!

About a kilometer north east of Penantyisaf is a place called Sinar at SN 101347. That part of the moor surrounding where the footpaths intersect is full of hollows in the ground, stones in straight and curved lines and stone cairns. I use the access there to visit Beddyrafanc and ive always puzzled over this particular area as it does not appear natural.

Thank for the idea to use Apple for this - I had not thought of it before. By the way, nothing bad happens when you let Apple use your location :)

Shall try to check out Sinar...... sounds interesting! Where you see frequent pits they can be "stone take" sites -- often associated with road building or for trackways etc in modern times.
