Site Description NAR SO13SW9

An uncertain earthwork site that has been identified as a motte and bailey castle.

A sub-rectangular enclosure, about 66m by 50m, rests on scarps above the Afon Llynfi to the north-west. It is otherwise defined by seemingly natural gully carrying a small watercourse about its south-east anf north-east sides, and a sunken track on the south-west. An earthen bank crossing the gully could represent a pond-bay. A mutilated mound in the north-west angle, about 25m by 16m, might be the remains of a motte.
