For notes on how to get here follow diections for Hengwm Ring Cairn.

Two long-cairns, aligned east-west, fifty yards north and south of each other. The northern one is smaller and less complete. It's massive capstone lies just proud of the cairn (no entry possible). To it's rear(?) one can make out the outline of ruined chambers .

The southern long-cairn is the real star here, nearly twice as long as its partner. A wall cuts off its head leaving three standing stones (all over six feet tall) and a big capstone. In the middle of the monument is the intact chamber. One large capstone covers all. The cairn itself is still eight feet tall. A real gem! I feel privileged to be the one to post pic's and notes.
