Description

This very extensive early settlement lies on the rough upland pasture above Cwm Pennant. It includes several hut circles set amidst a series of field enclosures or paddocks. The huts are generally quite small and lie in small groups, occasionally linkled to the field boundaries. The features have not been excavated, but can be dated by analogy to the Iron Age or Romano British periods. The site may also have seen occupation in later centuries.
