The exposed remains of ancient burial chambers are often impressive but Kings Quoit in Manorbier must be in one of the most magnificent locations. Set on the cliff top it projects out into the bay like a sentinel. It is at one with the landscape but at the same time, seems to be wrenching itself out of the ground. It looks across the bay, standing as a marker for miles around.
