Blaen Glyn



From the Clwyd-Powys Archaeological Trust HER:
Large impressive cairn measures c.16m E-W x 13m N-S. The actual height of the cairn is difficult to determine as it is sited on a natural rise or terrace on an east-facing slope above Afon Tarrell. On the north and east sides the height appears to be 2m, but on the upslope side only 1.2m. The cairn is turf-covered and in good condition, but there is a north-south scar on its summit, c. 1.7m wide x 3.5m long x 0.25m deep, which is probably the result of an old excavation trench. (CPAT 2005)

There is another substantial cairn higher up the same field, which CPAT record as a post-medieval clearance cairn (Afon Tarell W Cairn II).
