Carreg Samson

Carreg Samson is a Neolithic chambered tomb that sits in a farmers field overlooking the coast and the bay of Aber Castle in North Pembrokeshire.

The monument is really interesting to see, and you can go right up to it and have a close look ;)

The cap-stone sits on top of 7 smaller standing stones, but it only actually touches about 3 of them…..it’s a little scary to stand under that huge stone ;>.>

The stones may have once been covered by a mound, and they would have formed a chamber within the mound…..there’s no sign of any mound around the stones now though, just flat grassland.

We nearly drove right past the entrance to the farm where the monument is, as it’s not really signposted…..if you’re looking for Carreg Samson, then keep an eye out for the Longhouse sign and turn in there ;)
