Grims Grave

Grims Grave
Walk up the valley of the Langcombe and you will eventually come to a low, irregular circle of stones inside which sits a kistvaen. This is the sinister sounding ‘Grim’s Grave’ whose name shadows its origins. If you read the early wri such as Page you will be led to believe that:

“It is now known as Grims-grove, that is Grim’s Grave, and has been looked upon as probably the last resting-place of a Viking of that name, who fell in the battle which gave the upper part of the Plym its name of cad, or battlefield,” 1895, p.263.

Interesting capture Pat, something keeps the grass short around the grave.

Roger, probably someone from The National Trust or English Heritage (or even the local council) with a petrol-powered strimmer every so often. In Cornwall similar sites were kept pretty trim when I used to visit them - probably as they are an important tourism resource.
