Chambered Cairn


We visited Gwern-y-Cleppa on 30th March 2013. We began by taking the X16 bus from Newport Bus Station to the stop just by the entrance to the Cleppa Park industrial estate.

As previously mentioned, just after the track crosses the motorway there is an obvious gap in the fence on the left hand side. However, we found the "gap" had been filled with several strands of barbed wire, which we squeezed through with some difficulty.

An easier route to the stones, which we discovered only after visiting them, is to ignore the gap in the fence, continue up the track, and then climb a gate to gain entry into the first field. After climbing the gate, there is a farm track that skirts the edge of the first field and leads to an open gate into the second field. The stones are then just a short walk downhill.
