The Bridestones

Burial Chamber


The Bridestones are one of the few megalithic sites between Derbyshire and Wales and are well worth a visit if you can put up with incessant dog barking and the occasional Curious Cow. Two big flanking uprights infront of a roofless burial chamber, curious for its porthole stone: one of only five or so known from the UK. While you're there go for a walk on the cutely named Cloud: fantastic views across the north Midlands and you can tell your mates you went for a walk in the Clouds.... Posted by Dave M
