Presaddfed burial chambers just before sunset.
In an open field just 100 metres
south of the Llyn Llywenan lake are the remains of a pair of
chambers and although they stand only a couple of metres apart it
is not clear if they formed part of the same monument or are two separate
tombs. A report in the Archaeological Journal from the mid 19th century
states that they were surrounded by 'a great number of small stones' which
may suggest they were once connected by a single covering cairn
much like the tombs of Trefignath 9km (5
miles) to the west however no trace of these stones remain so the original
form of the monument is open to interpretation.
Presaddfed burial chambers, the redundant wooden frame is clearly visible in this picture.
