Ty Mawr Standing Stone
Ty Mawr Standing Stone
A solitary standing stone in a farm field on the outskirts of Holyhead. The Ty Mawr stone stands about 9 feet tall and was probably rerected in the Bronze Age. The stone is heavily twisted towards the top, as if a giant hand had given it a mighty twirl!
The Ty Mawr standing stone is located just a short distance north west of the Trefignath Burial Chamber (also open access and also in the care of Cadw). For that reason you may sometimes see it referred to as the Trefignath Standing Stone. Unfortunately the encroachments of modern civilisation mean that the stone is beside an aluminium works, and quite near the busy A55 trunk road. On the other hand there are good views north to Holyhead Mountain!
