Dolmen / Quoit / Cromlech


Visited 8.9.12

My last CADW site of the day – and what a productive day it has been!
There are so many prehistoric sites to visit in this corner of Anglesey it is like ‘old stone’ heaven!

We parked on the verge and Karen stayed in the car while myself and Sophie wandered over to have a look at the Dolmen.

Judging by the way the ground has been churned up around the fencing it is a good job it is there. Clearly the cows would have used the Dolmen for rubbing up against otherwise!

I hopped over the fence for a close up view.
Sophie giggled and ran inside the Dolmen.
There are 5 standing stones although only 3 of them are actually holding the capstone up.
There was lots of ‘hairy’ lichen covering the stones.

This is a cracking Dolmen – possibly the best on Anglesey.
There are great views over to Snowdonia.
All in all a ‘must see’ site.
