Mynydd Y Gelli (Welsh Stonehenge)
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
Unfortunately, on Griffith's death his sister destroyed his work. She was a devout Christian and believed that her brother had been led into dangerous territory with his belief in astro-archaeology and Druidic religion. So we will never know what Griffith found at the site, and that's a shame, because it has never been properly studied since then.
It is difficult to find the site; indeed, numerous people report having to take several goes before eventually finding the stones! Your best bet is to park in Gelli village and make for Bwllfa Farm; or better yet, ask a local resident. The site is basically a large field with scattered stones and ruined shepherd huts, so it can be hard to make out at first.
