Description


Summary Description and Reason for Designation
The following provides a general description of the Scheduled Ancient Monument. Motte castle commanding crossing of R Conway at Tal y Cafan. A tree-covered mound, just over 100m in circumference and 4.5m high. The top measures 16m N-S by 10m E-W. Stone robbing has removed a part of the E side of the mound. There are no signs of a bailey. The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of medieval settlement and defence. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. The structures themselves may be expected to contain archaeological information concerning chronology and building techniques. The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
