King's Quoit

This Quoit is a burial chamber overlooking the coast at Manobier in Pembrokeshire in South Wales (UK).
This type of structure is also referred to as a Dolmen.
King’s Quoit is constructed of at least 3 upright stones and a large capstone. Although it is only a metre high it struts out by about 4 metres. The main capstone on this is hidden and could form part of the structure of the cliff, this would make it a ‘Sub-Megalith’.
The stones are all local sandstone.
The Quoit is quite easy to get to and is on the coastal path at Manorbier and the views across Manorbier bay are breath-taking.
I found it on a very relaxing spot on a warm summer afternoon to stop and rest.
If you ever have the opportunity to visit this part of the world then also take time to visit the early medieval church which is close by.
