Chambered Tomb


Poor old Broomfields portal tomb – ruined, neglected, overgrown and overlooked. The capstone has fallen and leans over the chamber, on top of one of the portals. The other portal is still upright and there's a backstone standing, but you'd never tell in the summer as the whole thing is more or less hidden under the vegetation. It's incorporated in a boundary fence down a well laid farm track, but access is better from the field to the west where you can at least appreciate the quite massive capstone. If you're looking for atmosphere however, you probably won't get it here – there's so very little to be seen amidst the tangle of vegetation and now there's even trees growing between the stones. Some remedial work is desperately needed at this sad site. I'd be up for it if given permission. ryaner Posted by ryaner
