The Three Men of Gardoms



The Three Men are 18th century additions to a Neolithic oval barrow, the outer rim still quite visible. This is the only burial found within the Meg's Walls enclosure.
The 3 cairns are said to commemorate 3 shepherds who died on the moor or, and the more believable story, 3 drunken priests returning from a funeral.
