King's Quoit Looking Across Manorbier Bay
On of the most beautiful locations I have ever seen for a burial chamber is here on the side of a hill overlooking the picturesque Manorbier Bay. Partly supported by the earth and partly by the three small uprights the capstone of this Neolithic chambered tomb stands less than a metre above the ground but measures a massive 4.5 metres by 2.5 metres. There can be few finer places to spend a couple of hours on a warm summer's day and it is obvious that the original tomb builders shared the same idea except here the bones of the dead would have eternity to enjoy the view.
