The monument comprises the remains of a motte and ditch, dating to the medieval period (c. 1066 -1540 AD). A motte is a large conical or pyramidal mound of soil and/or stone, usually surrounded by either a wet or dry ditch, and surmounted by a tower constructed of timber or stone. Tomen Cefn Glaniwrch consists of a mutilated ditched mound, c.34m in diameter and 3.9m high, with traces of the ditch only on the south-east. A possible earlier rectangular enclosure, or associated bailey , has been suggested from LiDAR evidence.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of medieval defensive practices. The monument is well-preserved and an important relic of the medieval landscape. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of both structural evidence and intact associated deposits.
