Maen Hir, Glan Fedwen

Kerbed Cairn


An unmarked site - on both the 1:50K and 1:25K OS maps - and therefore a very pleasant surprise indeed for the traveller on the way to Cistfaen's summit cairns....

According to Coflein:

'Remains of a cairn cemetery on the south-west facing flanks of Glan Fedwen. Comprises of at least four cairns, one of which is a massive and very well-preserved kerb cairn, measuring 18.5m in diameter and up to 1.3m in height. The remaining cairns are small satellites of the kerb cairn and range in size from 3m to 5m in diameter and stand up to 0.3m in height.
