Bryn Celli Ddu

Chambered Cairn


Whilst browsing round a second hand book store on the city walls of Chester, we found a book published in 1975 which showed a picture of Bryn Celli Ddu with the original outer stone in situ. This beautiful stone is hugely important to Bryn Celli Ddu.
We feel that the "stone" replica in its place absolutely takes away from this wonderful monument. Its whiteness grates with the rest of the site. Why is the original languishing in a museum in Cardiff where it is completely detached from its origins and therefore meaningless?
Wouldn't it be great if, within our lifetime, we could see the stone returned to its proper home.
