Tomb in Manorbier (Maenorbŷr)

This simple neolithic dolmen fashioned from slabs of rock has sat here overlooking shell-shaped Manorbier Bay since around 3000 BC. The enormous capstone is supported by an earth bank and two small sidestones. To find it, head to the beach at Manorbier and turn left onto the coast path. You will see the dolmen before you round the headland.
