Ty Newydd Burial Chamber
Ty Newydd Burial Chamber
The remains of a Neolithic chambered tomb, with a chamber composed of four short stones supporting a very large capstone. The supporting stones have a little help, for the capstpone is now also supported on two brick pillars, which do rather distract from the ambience, but on the other hand, without them the capstone would be in the mud! The capstone is approximately 13 feet long and 5 feet wide.
The chamber was originally part of a passage grave. One theory is that the tomb was originally similar to Bryn Celli Ddu, with a second chamber joined to the first by a passage, and the entire tomb covered by a large mound.

There is no parking area for the tomb; just park along the verge and take the signed path.
