Chambered Cairn


Access to the wonderful Bryn-yr-Hen-Bobl has always seemed problematic. However plan in advance and my solution - although admittedly back in October 2006 - was to write to The Marquess of Anglesey to see what the position was..... I quote from his (handwritten) reply:

'Just back from S. Italy to receive your [letter] of 29 Sep. I am v. pleased to give you permission to visit the 2 sites you mention in week beginning 23 October. Remember to shut the gate at the Hen Bobl! Every good wish.....'

Not exactly unfriendly, it has to be said, so suggest this may well be the best option if you wish to hang out at the site in peace. If so, the address is:

The Marquess of Anglesey,
Plas Newydd,
Llanfair P.G.
North Wales LL61 6DZ
