|Description ||CARREG SAMSON TOMB
NGR: SM84833350 (Landranger map 157/Outdoor Leisure North Pembrokeshire map (No 35))
Located close to the village of Mathry on the coast adjacent to a public footpath through a farmyard.
The huge capstone is downward sloping towards the bay and Strumble Head beyond. Seven uprights exist but only three support the capstone. The whole may once have been covered by a rectangular mound.
Excavated in 1968 - the entrance was located to the north-west which had a 2m long passage leading from it.
|Good to see the tomb in relation to the landscape.|
