Dolmen / Quoit / Cromlech


Visited 9.9.12

Another CADW site.
The Tombs are sign posted and there is a small parking bay.

Walk up the drive, past the lodge on your left and then the cricket pitch on your right.
The Tombs are in the field on your left and access is via a kissing gate

The field was full of sheep and it was amusing to see several of them sheltering out of the wind and rain inside the Tomb still standing – although they soon left when I arrived!

The capstone of the standing Tomb is large – about 2m square and .05m thick. It is held up by 4 standing stones. There was a fair bit of ‘hairy’ lichen on the stones.

Pity the second Tomb has collapsed – perhaps someone will put it back together one day?
This is an easy site to access and well worth a visit.
