View of Maen Llia looking northwest towards the valley of the Afon Senni.
Situated in the beautiful wilderness
between the Breacon Beacons and the Black Mountain overlooked by the hills of
Fan Fawr and Fan Gihirych, Maen Llia is a truly massive sliver of rock. While
it is over 3.5 metres tall and nearly 3 metres wide, it is only 75 centimetres
thick and bears a striking resemblance to a giant Neolithic hand axe. Although
it is aligned North-South, the sides of the rock become surprisingly warm to the
touch on a sunny day.
