White House, Llanhowell Cromlech

Chambered Tomb


You can drive almost right up to the field in which this portal dolmen stands, but if you get to a cottage turn round and park by the gate, not ideal but there was no answer at the house.
A short ramble back down the lane and a shorter rummage through the bushes over barbed wire and you can see where Moss took her picture from, here, the monument is 60m away.
Again, the chamber is half full of field clearence, and the whole thing is half overgrown. The stones are a bit of a jumble, to me it looked like the capstone had broke in half and collapsed into the chamber, but George Nash seemed to disagree, he also says the place has never been excavated.
From here I can see Carn Treglemaes, I toyed with the idea of finding Llecha cromlech but Coflein says theres only two boulders left, sorry Moss.
