A Roman road is assumed to lead north from the Roman settlement at Cardiff (NPRN 301346), linking the military settlements at Caerphilly (NPRN 301345), Gelligaer (NPRN 93007) and Pen-y-Darren (NPRN 301352), eventually heading for Brecon Gaer (NPRN 92001). Field evidence is limited to an uncertain stretch north from Gelligaer (NPRN 401045).
