Dyffryn Ardudwy Cromlechs
Behind the local school at Dyffryn Ardudwy and reached by a sign posted footpath two exposed cromlechs are visible amidst a field of stones. The cromlechs are about twenty feet apart and the stones that surround them mark the remains of the huge cairn that would have covered these graves that date back to the Neolithic period. The original cairn is estimated to have been 130’ long and 55’ wide. The entrances to the burial chambers face east. Inside the chambers were discovered evidence of cremations and two plaques made of stone from Mynydd Rhiw, the Neolithic axe factory.
