Presaddfed Burial Chamber
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
According to Cadw (Welsh Heritage) who look after the site, the tomb was established sometime between 4000 and 2000 BCE as a place for communal burials. It would originally have been covered with a mound of stones or earth.
Local legend has it that in the 18th century the chambers were used as a shelter by a poor family - which is astonishing given how small and open the chambers are!
