(1700) ENCLOSURES AND HUTS, Nant Gwrtheyrn

(1700) ENCLOSURES AND HUTS, Nant Gwrtheyrn (Fig. 106),
at 250 ft. above 0.0. on a natural level area in ground falling fairly steeply to the S.W. The remains are apparently those of an enclosed hut-group, containing at least one, and probably three, oval huts, with two additional enclosures to the S. The walls are of rubble, faced with small blocks or slabs on edge, but have been disturbed in places by rebuilding as later folds and by robbing. They remain in places to a height of 2 ft., but are generally lower.


The adjacent field to the S.E. is named Fynwent in the Tithe
Award (No. 851). Fenton (p. 229) refers to a ruined chapel in
this field; there are traces of a rectangular structure at SH
35114496, but its age and purpose are uncertain.

Condition: robbed and ruined.
