    Bryn Celli Ddu

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We walked from Bangor to visit Bryn Celli Ddu and it was certainly worth it. It is a fantastic place and is really 2 Prehistoric sites in one. An earlier circle of standing stones (Hendge)surrounded by a bank and internal ditch. first stood on this fantastic site but it was later destroyed by the builders of this Megalithic burial chamber about 3,500 to 4,00 years ago.
    What was once a huge Cairn. The existing mound is a partial reconstruction to allow access and also allows three stones from the old stone circle and two other features behind the chamber to be seen, the cairn covers a single polygonal chamber thats about 8 ft across, the chamber is reached by a long and narrow passage. The chamber contained skeletons when it was first opened.

    We ate our dinner sitting in front of the entrance while a VERY large cow with horns took a great deal of interest in us and seemed to creep up menacingly and then it had a walk around the fenced off area of the site looking if we could get out without crossing it's field again. when it found we could it gave up and went away. untill after the cow had gone we did not know there was a way out with out crossing the field and we thought we would have to run for it with a mad cow chasing us.

    Just a few miles south of the villages is Snowdonia, a beautiful hilly region with forests and numerous crystall clear lakes. I was here in winter so swimming was not my intension but I bet in the summer time it is very attracting.
