Site Description NAR SH56NW1

Two megalithic chambers from a Neolithic barrow or cairn have survived to become a feature in Plas Newydd Park (NPRN 265416) and as such they have been maintained if not restored. Both chambers have their capstones, one a vast slab some 11.5m by 9.5m and 3.5m thick. No trace remains of the mound or cairn.
The monument stands beside a cricket pitch.
A little way to the south, but still within the park, is another Neolithic chambered tomb, Bryn-yr-Hen-Bobl, that has retained something of its cairn (NPRN 300180).
