Tinkinswood Burial Chamber
Constructed nearly 6000 years ago, this Neolithic burial chamber held over 50 bodies.
At around 40 tonnes, the capstone weighs as much as an articulated lorry and is one of the largest in Britain. Parts of the site were reconstructed following its excavation in 1914 and is located close to the well-known St Lythans Burial Chamber.
This is a CADW listed property.
Open all year.
