Burial Chamber


Tinkinswood Community Archaeology

A city centre mini-megalith or folly

"In 1918 this house became the Prince of Wales Hospital for Limbless Sailors and Soldiers, and to mark its opening the stone folly in the front garden was donated by Miss Cory of Duffryn House. The folly is made of Radyrstone and is a replica of a Megalithic Burial Chamber contained within the Maes-y-Felin Cromlech (or Chambered Long Barrow) near St Lythans, South Glamorgan, which dates from the Neolithic period (C. 3000 B.C.)"

A 'site' I know very well as I used to pass it every day on the bus!

It is very close to cardiff City centre - 5 minute walk - on Richmond Road / Dumfries Place.

Before looking at the photos I didn't realise it had a hole in the stone at the back or that it was a Tinkinswood replica / folly.

If anyone would like more exact directions to the stones please let me know.
