A short distance north west of the village of Ystradowen, off the A4222

I parked on the grass verge outside Ash Hall and battled my way through the chest high ferns and brambles to get to the public footpath wooden stile. Once over the stile it is only a short uphill walk to the site.

The site consists of a shallow bank and ditch – about 0.5m deep – semi-circular.

The enclosure occupies a surprisingly prominent position in the fairly flat countryside and offers good views to the south and east.

There’s not much to see in all honesty but with blue skies, warm sun, no wind and dry underfoot I enjoyed my short visit here.

Coflein has nothing to say about the site other than having it recorded as a ‘defended enclosure’.
