Barrow / Cairn Cemetery


Rhiwiau barrow is just massive, so big that you'd think theres no way thats a barrow, it's even got modern brickwork still visible on top, but it is bronze age as the cremation urns and bronze dagger found there confirm.
Not many parking places are to be had so we just squeezed in on a wide bit of the road.
The barrow is right next to the road and at nearly three metres tall it's far too big to be missed.
It was very windy on the top of it, although the rain had gone off, Eric was trying to jump off it but the wind was so strong that he was just jumping up and down.
The only cairn ive been to in North Wales that's bigger is Gop Cairn, thats how big it is.
