A chance to investigate this unique and important passage tomb which is not generally open to the public. Find out more about its architecture and enjoy special access to view the ancient decorated stones.

Barclodiad-y-Gawres is a partially reconstructed Neolithic burial chamber, famous for its decorated stones. The spectacular, cliff side position of this later Neolithic monument is one of its great attractions and accessing it provides a short pleasant walk. Barclodiad-y-Gawres means 'The Giantess's Apronful' and is a traditional local name.

Tours will be at 11.00am, 1.00pm and 3.00pm. Meet at the monument.
