Welsh History Month: A tale of two tombs ...

"The island of Anglesey has a personality all of its own. Sheltered in the lee of Snowdonia, it is the only area of fertile and accessible land in a region of high and barren mountains.

Barclodiad-y-Gawres (Chambered Cairn) — Miscellaneous

I rang up Wayside Stores this afternoon, to see whether access was still possible. They told me that, as of this year, they no longer hold a key. Apparently Cadw are running occasional open days though.
