Wedge Tomb

Maumnahaltora (Wedge Tomb) by Rhiannon It'd be nice enough to have one wedge tomb. But two in a small area? Oh no, there's not two here, or three, but FOUR.

also a cup marked stone... and a holy well. It's enough to wear you out. All within 100m.

One of the tombs looks quite visible and upright. For the others, the stones are quite embedded in the bog? - photos and descriptions are available through the Historic Environment Viewer.

Was down here recently Rhiannon. I didn't drop by - apparently the landowner doesn't welcome visitors, not even the county archaeological surveyors. ryaner Posted by ryaner

That's a shame, I can't think there'd be many. It's not like s/he has to set up a souvenir stand and teashop and encourage them. Rhiannon Posted by Rhiannon
