Site Description

SAM No GM588
Remains of a large cairn, situated on the north-east side of a prominent ridge on Cefn Manmoel. Stone built and roughly circular on plan, measuring about 12m in diameter and up to 1m in height. A small rectangular brick and concrete structure (probably a pillbox or observation post dating from WWII) has been inserted into its north-west side. The cairn commands fine views over the valley to the east.
