Pastscape description:

Pen-twyn Camp is a small work of no great strength and appears to have been roughly oval in plan. The defences on the W consist of a double rampart and ditches, the inner rampart being the weaker. On the S there are now no defences, but the line is preserved approximately by the present hedge. On the N and E there is a scarp of about 8ft in height to the inner enclosure, but no remains of ramparts or ditches.
