Interesting these cromlechs, Children/Nash says of these 'hidden' monuments, "during the Neolithic, only those with special 'ritual' knowledge may have known the precise whereabouts" . Never visited them sadly, but Carn Wen are slightly similar, a little cemetery, though as you can see from the photos they are located next to houses and a play area, and when I was there covered in vegetation, not terribly inspiring as 'flat table' cromlechs.

This is a great place, it was one of the last places I took my daughter on her own before the boring stones outweighed being out with dad.
Garn Wen we enjoyed a lot too.

One of my favourite places on the coast walk so far. We stayed so long that the tide had come in too far to see the fossilised trees by the time we got round to Amroth. Very difficult to tear ourselves away though. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat
