Nant Esgeiriau

Round Cairn


Coflein knows....

Remains of a cairn with a large centrally placed stone cist. This measures 2m x 0.7m and is covered by a substantial capstone resting on three stone uprights. The cairn perimeter is marked by a stony bank 12 m in diameter. It is likely that the entire sturcture was originally covered by a cairn of stones, many of which remain in situ, while others have been re-used in the construction of a sheep fold which partially covers the site.

Large cists? capstones? uprights? Yaaaaaay
Sheepfold ? Boooooo
Oh well you can't have it all.
