A sub-circular ditched mound, c.28-30m in diameter and 2.4m high, without which on the N & W are two banks either side of a wet moat, the top of these banks are approximatly level with the summit of the mound, & it is suggested that this has been subject to landscaping (see Nprn401612); on the SE are the house, enclosures & outbuildigs of Pen-y-Clawdd Court (Nprn20628, 43337); together these features appear to be set within a poorly defined subrectangular enclosure, c.150m NNW-SSE by 135m.
