Scheduled Date: 22 September 1995
Source ID: 1416

Schedule Class: Domestic
Category: Hut group
Traditional County: Caernarfonshire
Several circular huts lie near the bottom of a small marshy valley. Six are traceable, each between 5m and 6.6m diameter, all much robbed of stone, and others may exist under the dense undergrowth. Terraced fields extend nearly ½km to the N and NW.
A stone containing a rough basin shaped hollow 20cm diameter and 11.5cm deep was dug up in one of the huts.
The hut group comprises 7 hut circles from 3m to 9m diameter. The nucleus of the group consists of 3 hut circles and a sub-rectangular enclosure. One of the huts has an unusual annexe straddling its entrance, and there is evidence that these huts may originally have been enclosed. The terraces to the north appear to be natural.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of Prehistoric settlement. 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.
