Site Description A formerly sub-divided enclosure in a coastal location on Mynydd Mawr has been improved as a single enclosure, the partition banks now largely ploughed down.
To the immediate south-west of the enclosure is an area of cultivation ridges, seen from high ground to the north-west, which appear to extend south-east into a small coastal valley. They are low ridges, no more than 0.1m high and 1.5m-2m wide.
