2. Being plough-levelled, constructional details are visible from aerial photography taken in 1989, for example the provision of gates just inside the main entrance at left, allowing access into the outer enclosure, together with a simple `back door? in the perimeter ditch at upper right. (Text from Driver & Davis 2013, 'Historic Wales from the Air, RCAHMW).

Photographed during aerial reconnaissance.
