Deer-Park Court Tomb

Dating back 3000 years BC We drive into the car-park and its 15-20 mins walk through the forest to the tombs. Deerpark Court Tomb is built with rough, fissured limestones slabs, few of which exceed 1m in height. It consists of an oval shaped court, 15m in length, with a pair of twin galleries at the east end and a single gallery opposite these at the west end, which give a total length of 30m. An entrance passage links the court to the edge of the remaining kerb stones and is located on the south side of the monument. Each gallery is divided by jambs into two chambers.
