Description

A complex of enclosures, field banks and clearance cairns extending across the summit and slopes of Ffridd Brynhelen. One single enclosure and 3 double enclosures, including a possible medieval Hafod, and at least 2 hut circles. Field banks are closely associated with the enclosures and clearance cairns are dispersed on the W slope in particular. Date is uncertain, but - probably Bronze Age / early Iron Age, with the possibility of Medieval re-use.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of multi-period settlement and defence. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. The structures themselves may be expected to contain archaeological information concerning chronology and building techniques.

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