Save Mynydd y Betws
Historic Neolithic Monument


This website is devoted to the rescue of a newly discovered Neolithic Ceremonial Complex on Mynydd y Betws Mountain in Carmartheshire, Wales.

Archaeologist Sandy Gerrard has recently begun investigating Mynydd y Betws. Sandy was an English Heritage designation officer for 20 years.  He works on Dartmoor scheduling monuments and has excavated and surveyed extensively in South West England and South Wales.

Sandy has published a preliminary report which shows the extent of the damage being caused to the Mynydd y Betws monument complex. See the report.

   Urgent Action Is Required

Parts of the stone row have already been destroyed by mechanical diggers as recently as Feb 2012. These vehicles continue to plough about the site, sometimes in the snow completely unaware of what they are trashing. It seems the vehicles are exceeding the area they are supposed to be restricted to.

The recently discovered stone row could be part of a much bigger system forming a Ceremonial Complex. If these mechanical diggers are allowed to carry on churning up the mountain, we may never know what Archaeology lies beneath.
