Dyffryn Mymbyr cist II


Another less well defined cist on the other side of the road.
Coflein describes it thus:
A large upright slab 1.5 m wide and protruding from the ground by 1.2 m has two smaller slabs placed at right angles to it to create a stone box. To one side is a short stretch of slab wall, 1.6 m long, 0.5 m tall and 0.6 m high. The internal dimensions of the cist would have been approximately 0.8 m by 1.5 m
