Moel Faban Settlement

Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork


Set below a Bronze Age cairn cemetery crowning the summit ridge of Moel Faban, this is one of a number of settlements in the immediate locality.
According to Coflein:

'A generally curvilinear enclosure, c.30m N-S by 20m, defined by tumbled stony banks & scarps, incorporating at least three structures, the largest c.7.2m in diameter: set within an extensive area of relict field boundary features, c.430m NE-SW by 285m, including several groups of settlement features, with further, similar features &/or cairns outlying on the N.
A burnt mound...lies rather to the E.'
