Its #tombtuesday again! Today we have the site of Gwern-y-Cleppa. This Neolithic chambered tomb would once have had commanding views over the Severn Estuary.
The site consists at present of seven stones - a capstone, three standing uprights, one fallen and two small half buried stones. The supporting stones of the chamber have been mutilated and the coverer (capstone) broken, but enough remains to show that the whole structure was of considerable size. 
The cist (chamber) lay SE & NW and the mound which covered it was about 50ft diameter of which traces remain. 
A sketch of the tomb by William Henry Greene, dated 1893, can be viewed on the Newport Past website here:

Forget those #mondaymorningblues with our #mondaymorningloos 
We got to record these splendid toilets within an award winning Grade II-listed school last week. The building, built 1949-53 by Johnson Blackett FRIBA, won the 1951 Festival of Britain Award of Merit.
