Site Description

At Skirrid fawr is an elongated enclosure, roughly 320m north-south by 100m, tapering to a point on the south, apparently defined by a continuous bank/scarp, occupying the summit of an isolated, mountainous ridge (Nprn605).

Source: Makepeace 1996 (AW36), 66-8.

Within the enclosure, on the north, is a medieval chapel site (Nprn306440).
