1.The earthwork remains of a sub-rectangular banked enclosure and platforms (NPRN: 422312; 422314; 422317) are visible on aerial photographs and 0.25m lidar at Parc y Capel. The west side approximately 78m in length exists in its entirety with a slight break towards the north that may represent an entrance. The south-west corner of the enclosure widens to a width of approximately 5m where it turns eastwards to form part of the northern bank of the larger pond to the south (NPRN: 308812). Located in the north-west corner is one of the platforms (NPRN: 422314) which is likely to be contemporary with the enclosure. The north side of the enclosure appears to terminate at the modern NE/SW aligned field boundary. Approximately 10m to the east of said modern boundary is platform NPRN: 422317 situated on the east-facing coastal slope. To the south straddling the east-west aligned pond channel (NPRN: 308812) is the third sub-rectangular platform NPRN: 422316.

It is possible that these features were originally part of a contemporary Medieval or Post-Medieval complex, perhaps focussed upon the ponds to the south.

All features have been digitally mapped and updated as part of the CHERISH Project.
