Pentre Ifan, Pembrokeshire, South Wales
Image credit and © Littlestone

Access to Pentre Ifan is along a footpath from the road; there is parking space by the road for four or five cars. The cromlech is in a well-cared for, fenced off area at the end of the footpath and has a good information board showing, among other things, an artist’s impression of how the structure may have originally looked.

Administrative authority: CADW ( http://www.cadw.wales.gov.uk/ ).
Heritage Action Cared for Rating  *** (out of 5).

Suggested improvements: Better off road parking facilities. Clear signs instructing visitors not to climb on the stones. One or two benches where people could pause and reflect on the monument and its surrounding setting.
