Overview

Descend into the darkness of a 5,000-year-old chambered tomb.

Wideford Hill Chambered Cairn is an excellent example of Neolithic design and construction. It is well preserved, with a high central chamber and three cells opening off it.

Today the tomb is accessed through the roof, rather than original long and narrow original passage from the west. Inside there are rare examples of Neolithic scratch art.
