HERITAGE HIGHLIGHTS: Is this the smallest stone circle in Britain?
This is one of 4 stone circles on the headland above Penmaenmawr, near Conwy. The circle probably dates to the Bronze Age, and it stands on a much-travelled trading route between eastern England and Ireland.
The circle is on the trail leading up to the more spectacular Druid's Circle, silhouetted on the top of the ridge. It is about 3 metres across (roughly 10 feet) and the interior of the circle was found to be strewn with small bits of quartz when it was excavated in 1958.
