Description

The monument comprises the remains of a complex arrangement of two pools, an adjoining cottage and an adjacent latrine built over the stream, all standing to eaves height.

Most of the masonry is thought to date from the 18th century, with some re-building in the 19th century of the cottage walls.

The well is situated in a valley below Llangybi church, alongside a stream which feeds into the Afon Erch.

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