Site Description

Earthwork remains at Coed-y-fedw
Archaeological features here fall into two areas:
Homestead enclosure.
Two sides of a rectangular enclosure are clearly visible with the possible remains of a rectangular building in the corner of the L-shape so formed. Downhill, to the S, the ground is uneven being characterised by indeterminate bumps which may conceal other structures.
These remains cover an area of some 100m (NNE-SW) by 80m.
Possible medieval motte.
A ditched, irregularly-shaped mound in an area measuring 40m (N-S) by 50m. Some nearby earthworks (?trackway approaching the motte from downhill) on the north are also clearly visible.
