Description

The monument consists of the remains of a building of unknown character and date. The building survives in the form of the stone foundations of a ruined building in which the form of stone construction employed combined with the location of the building at one of the highest points of the Abbey Cwm-hir Great Park suggest that this could be the surviving remains of a medieval hunting lodge associated with the use of the park for deer hunting.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of construction techniques and settlement organisation. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. The structure itself may be expected to contain archaeological information concerning chronology and building techniques. The building may be part of a larger cluster of monuments and its importance can further enhanced by their group value.

The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
