Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork


Visited 16.7.10.
I don't normaly visit these type of sites as it usually involves a bit of a hike with little to be seen at the end of it. However, this is different and well worth a visit. There is a large car park opposite the path leading to the site which is sign posted Hendre'r Mynydd (Forestry Commission Wales). Walking down the path out onto the fields there is a cracking waterfall to be seen in the distance to your right (worth stopping off just to see that) and within 5 minutes you have reached the 'village'. There are the remains of collapsed walls for several buildings - some very large - and towards the bottom end what looked to me to be a collapsed long perimeter wall? On the down side there was evidence of recent fires and a fair amount of litter which I picked up and took home. Well worth a visit on a dry day - wouldn't be much fun in the middle of winter as it is quite exposed.
