RCAHMW/1960, 65: `Dolbenmaen is a large parish incorporating also the former parishes of Llanfihangel-y-Pennant and Penmorfa. The S. part of the parish is low-lying and generally agricultural; the N. part is mountainous, penetrated by the valleys of Pennant and Ystradllyn'.
Rhys/1882, 161--162: `[The stone] had been the lintel of a beudy, or cowhouse, which was built in a very peculiar manner, and thought to be at least five hundred years old. It stood in a field called Cefn y Gelli...Mr Drinkwater further noticed a strange enclosure to the south of the house of Gesail, and above it an evidently sepulchral arrangement which he thinks well worth examining. It stands to the south-west of the house of Gesail, on higher ground'.
The cow-house was demolished in 1881 (Rhys/1882, 161).
