Chambered Tomb


Visited 8.9.12

The first of my Anglesey CADW sites.
This was a bit trickier to find than I was expecting.
Karen stayed in the car and I carried Sophie as I thought this would be easy to walk to.

There is room to park near the farm entrance. (The sign for the tomb was covered by an overgrown hedge – I cleared it before we left)
Walk down the farm track (farm derelict?) and over the field gate.
Across a small paddock and over another field gate.
Across a field and over a padlocked, old, rusty gate.
Across another field and through a kissing gate.
Then across a field of thistles before squeezing through an overgrown kissing gate.
You then come to the Chambered Tomb! (In total it is a 15 minute walk)

The signage is poor and you can’t see the tomb until you are through the final kissing gate as the site is obscured by bushes / brambles etc.
The info board is no longer there.

In saying all this don’t be put off as persistence will prevail and the site is worth the effort. If you get lost – head for the ‘rocky hill’ – the site is in front of it.

There are two large remaining stones.
One is approx 6ft square and the other is about 4ft high x 7ft across.
