Crugiau Garn Fawr

Barrow / Cairn Cemetery


Visited 29.10.11

Just a bit further west along the same minor road from Caerau Clyngwyn Hillfort.
I parked at the entrance to the farm opposite and access to the site is easy as there is a permissive footpath leading through the field. Footpath sign present.
The two Barrows are easy to spot – only a 1 minute walk away.

The larger of the two Barrows is the one on the left – being about 1 metre high and 30 metres across. The Barrow to the right is about the same height but slightly smaller – 25 metres across. The field was full of sheep.

COFLEIN gives a brief description:
'Two Barrows, ploughed but substantial'.

South of the Barrows is an Iron Age enclosure (Garn Fawr Circle – SN39622379) but I didn't have time to check it out.
