Cefn Amwlch (S.W.View, Griffith's text)

In the immediate neighbourhood this Cromlech goes by the name of Coetan Arthur (Arthur's Quoit) from the tradition that Arthur Gawr (Arthur the Giant) cast it from Carn Madryn, a mountain a few miles off, and that his wife brought the other stones in her apron and placed them as supporters to the Coetan. It is situated on Mynydd Cefn Amwlch, on the left hand of the road from Sarn Mellteyrn to Tudweiliog, and about one mile and a half from the former place. The capstone is supported at present by three uprights, and there is another one fallen by its side. The capstone is sixteen feet five inches long by ten feet ten inches wide, and averages from two to three feet in thickness. The southern support is four feet nine inches high by eight feet six inches wide. The northern support is four feet nine inches high by seven feet five inches wide at its base. The eastern support is four feet nine inches high by eight feet five inches wide. The support that is fallen is seven feet five inches long by seven feet wide. (See Arch. Camb. Vol.II 1847
