I parked at the bottom of the uphill driveway, mostly because I was going to have to ask permission for a visit and it always pays not to blunder around peoples farms in your car, if the farm was called Cerrig Llwydion it is no more, cant quite remember the new name, Nant something or other.

The farmer was very Welsh and had no problem
with me inspecting the chambers he pointed the way and off I went, this was the last port of call and I was frankly crapped up to the eyeballs, so god knows what he thought of this crazy Englishman.
I knew this chambered long cairn was incorperated in a field boundary but was still dissapointed to find the place barely recognisable as such, the rear chamber has collapsed, two stones in the middle look like another ex chamber but the front chamber still hangs on to its dignity and one can still peer inside under its capstone,
The cows all but ignored me.
