Carreg Bica is large standing stone on the hill overlooking Skewen in Neath West Glamorgan. It is a large and impressive stone spoilt only by the fact that it is covered in graffiti and is currently being used as a gatepost. The stone is local sandstone and is around 13ft high.
The Stone is also known by other names : Maen Bredwan or Maen Bradwen, it is also mentioned in a charter to King John to William De Breos in 1203 as "meynhirion" a boundary stone marking the Gower.
Legends Surrounding the Stone
Again we have a legend of the stone moving and going to a local stream to drink or bathe. In this case the stone is said to bathe in the river Neath once a year on Easter morning
Children from Skewen were said to race to the stone on Easter morning.
