Caer Estyn



Caer Estyn is more of an 'enclosure' than a full-on hillfort. It's not on a very steep hill, and the single wall didn't have a ditch. On the hill opposite are the remains of Caergwrle castle - the last proper Welsh castle, built in 1278 by Dafydd ap Gruffydd. Coflein's record hints that there might have been a similar enclosure on that hill too. Rhiannon Posted by Rhiannon
