“Check out the echo!”
Reviewed 6 August 2013

Stumbled across this stone whilst exploring St. Dogmaels. Nice bit of history and we spent a happy 10 mins shouting out to hear the echoes!

“Ancient Bluestone dolmen - Pembrokeshire”
Reviewed 9 February 2013

The Blessing or Answer Stone (Carreg Ateb):
The Blessing Stone below the Teifi Netpool pub in St Dogmaels was possibly once the capstone of a dolmen [from the Breton taol-maen - ‘stone table’] that stood on the level ground above its present position, where the view is spectacular.
These ancient monuments are made of spotted dolerite (bluestone), a basalt which occurs at several outcrops in the Preseli Mountains, which provided the main sources for the famous Stonehenge bluestones. If you the stand on the stone and yell you get the most perfect echo back. Plus once a year there is a ceremony to bless the river from the stone which is well worth attending.
