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 with lockable gates 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.
A trio of tombs
Despite their proximity to one another, this trio of Neolithic (New Stone Age) tombs were raised in distinctly different periods. The earliest chamber at the site’s western end is a simple box-like structure surrounded by a cairn of boulders. The chamber in the middle (both in terms of its age and location) has now collapsed, with only a few of its stones still standing. At the site’s eastern side, the third and most recent tomb remains almost intact, with its original capstones and two impressive portal stones at its entrance.
Excavations suggest that the site was in use for as many as 1,500 years, demonstrating how significant these monuments must have been to our early ancestors.
Dogs on leads welcome to access ground floor levels of the site.
Cadw do not allow drone flying from or over its guardianship sites, except by contractors commissioned for a specific purpose, who satisfy stringent CAA criteria, have the correct insurances and are operating under controlled conditions.
