Gaer Llwyd Image The capstone of this burial chamber, now broken, measures about 3.6m (12ft)

 Hi-Res  (74Kb)

This dolmen, called also Garnllwyd (Grey Fortress), is quite easy to find in a field at Llangwm, near the crossroads on the B4235 Chepstow to Usk road. It looks like a portal dolmen, but it was probably a chambered tomb (traces of a double chamber and of a passage entrance are still visible). The huge broken capstone is 3.6m (12ft) long.
    Note that the Ordnance Survey maps place the chamber on the wrong side of the road.
