Caerhoslligwy Hut Group (b), Llaneugrad

Primary Reference Number (PRN) : 2129
Trust : Gwynedd
Community : Llaneugrad
Unitary authority : Ynys Mon
NGR : SH49108523
Site Type (preferred type first) : Roman HUT CIRCLE SETTLEMENT
Status : Scheduled Ancient Monument

Description :
Hut group about 12.5m NE of 2128. Similarly situated on a limestone ridge. Much overgrown with bushes, it appears to consist of several circular huts, two of which remain in fair preservation with wall stones in situ; probably enclosed by a wall of which one straight section 14 yards long is visible on the south side. In poor condition. <1>

SH 49108523. An area of disturbed ground with a few isolated orthostats is all that remains of the settlement. <2>

Caerhoslligwy enclosed hut group, scheduled. <3>

No huts clearly traceable but obviously part of a group with 2128. This site is now very difficult to interpret as quarrying stone dumping and overgrowth all add to the confusion. The only readily discernible feature is a length of stone walling 13m long running in a NW-SE direction. A disturbed area with more orthostats lies NE of this wall. <4>

As previously described. <5>
