Miskin Manor standing stone, Rhondda Cynon Taff.

Archaeologists excavating the Newport Ship

The standing stone near Miskin Manor, Rhondda Cynon Taff, near to Junction 34 on the M4 is much smaller than the other stones shown here. It was excavated before it was moved, when the junction was built. The excavation was inconclusive, but nothing was found to suggest that it was not a prehistoric standing stone, in spite of the fact that it has an early 20th century inscription carved on it. This was added at the end of a dispute over a boundary.
