It’s around 150 miles (240km) from Wilt­shire to the Pre­seli Hills of west Wales, but so revered were the blue­stones of this Pem­brokeshire range that, ac­cord­ing to some ar­chae­ol­o­gists, the builders be­hind Stone­henge made the ef­fort to trans­port them. The sites of Carn Goe­dog and Craig Rhos-y-fe­lin have been iden­ti­fied as the quar­ries of Stone­henge’s do­lerite and rhy­o­lite. The seven mile (12km) Golden Road walk­ing trail, which fol­lows the spine of the Pre­seli Hills, leads from Bwlch-gwynt, tak­ing in Bronze Age burial cairns, King Arthur leg­ends, Foel Dry­garn Iron Age fortress and the quar­ries them­selves.
