Description

A well-preserved series of terraced and walled fields with associated settlements. The scheduled area is in three parts: that to the W (c. 30 ha) lies on enclosed land and is associated with three farms; the N section (A) with Caeronwy, the middle section (B) with Geulan, and the S section (C) with Gelli Ffrydiau. The two remaining parts lie on unenclosed common land, area D (2-3 ha) 200m to the E of B and area E (c. 30 ha) 150 m NE of D. Outside the scheduled area remnants of early field systems are visible to the W, E and SE.

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.
