From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mynachlog-ddu (SN143306) is a village, and community in the Preseli Hills, Pembrokeshire, Wales. The community also includes the parish of Llangolman.

There are two places of worship in the village: the Anglican church (Church in Wales) of St. Dogfael (sometimes, Dogmael), and Bethel, the Baptist meeting house.

The Welsh placename means "black monastic grange"[1]: before the Dissolution of the Monasteries, the parish belonged to St Dogmaels Abbey.

Caermeini, or more correctly Carn Menyn, part of the Preseli range, is located here and was the source of the bluestones used in the inner circle of Stonehenge. In 2000/2001 a project was established to try and transport a piece of bluestone from the village to Stonehenge. The project ended when the stone sank in the sea. It was lifted out a few months after, but the project was never resumed.
