Known locally as gwal-y-filiast, kennel of the greyhound bitch, the single stone chamber is all that remains of a once much larger burial monument.

The tomb was built in the style known as Cotswold-Severn, sometime around 4000 BC and is located close to the well-known Tinkinswood chambered tomb.

The burial chamber is a CADW property.

Open all year.
