Parc Castell comprises the remains of a large prehistoric round barrow, probably dating to the Bronze Age (c. 2300 BC - 800 BC). The grass-covered barrow is situated in improved pasture on a gentle SW facing slope. It is circular on plan, measuring about 18m in diameter and up to 0.75m in height.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric burial rites, social organisation and the environment. The monument retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of both structural evidence and the presence of intact burial or ritual deposits within, and prehistoric ground surfaces preserved below, the barrow.
The area to be scheduled comprises the remains described and an area around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive. It is circular on plan and measures 30m in diameter.
