Visitor Notice

Due to concerns over the further spread of Coronavirus and the well-being of our visitors, we regret to report that all Cadw unstaffed monuments and car parks will be closed from 5pm Monday 23 March until further notice. We do look forward to inviting people to once again enjoy these outstanding monuments as soon as we are able.  

Overview

Neolithic burial chamber in an unexplained location

Thanks to its setting in north Wales, this well-preserved Neolithic (New Stone Age) chamber is something of an oddity. Tombs of this type belong to an archaeological grouping called ‘Cotswold-Severn’ after the area in which they are generally found, so Capel Garmon’s unusual position so far north remains a mystery.

A 16ft/5m passageway leads to a triple burial chamber with a large capstone over the western compartment. Surrounding the structure is a ring of stones marking the outline of a nearly 100ft/30m earthen mound which originally covered it.
