The Brecon Beacons have a wealth of megaliths and this walk sees us wander around a few but most interestingly take part in a ritual watching of the rising sun that the ancients surely must have not only witnessed but, celebrated. We'd go even further, they placed stones to mark the spot that offers the best view of the sun rising between the twin peaks of Corn Ddu and Pen y Fan.

This is what it says on the event page:
'We will meet at the Brecon Beacons National Park Mountain Centre and if the weather is good for us we'll witness a timeless event, sunrise as the ancients would have seen it on the shortest day of the year.
It is believed that the stones that dot the landscape in the Brecon Beacons are aligned and mark an ancient spot which we'll visit in order to observe the sun rising, hidden, until it emerges from behind Pen y Fan's ridge to reveal itself in the Bwlch formed with Corn Ddu and Pen y Fan.
We will then go for a walk and locate the aligned stones as well as take a drive to have a look at Maen Llia, the largest standing stone in the area and a fine marker... but... for what?
Bring your megalithic theories with you :)'
