|Description ||Looking SW,the view here is outstanding.This must have been a very sought after plot of Neolithic real-estate.It is set in a hollow on the cliffside lined with stones bigger than any but the capstone.Children & Nash suggest "no covering mound would have existed because the ledge.....is far too narrow." (Logaston Press 2002)|
|Is it possible that some of the cliff has fallen away since the tomb was built? Maybe there was once a lot more space around it, though one side is tucked up under the hill. Narrow paths and high cliffs like this make me giddy! Lovely view tho. (Cue the 'Cannon' rock!)|
