Y Garreg Fawr

Burial Chamber


Back in 1867 a gentleman called Mr Morgan wrote about Garreg Fawr (the great stone) in his Aberystwyth Guide. He describes how it once "stood on pillars of the same material" but was "fractured by the kindling of a bonfire upon it".

Before it's destruction the tomb appears to have been the focal point for village life. Morgan says that "the [village] crier used to proclaim all matters of public interest" from the monument.
