Description : A dry-stone wall, c.1m high running across an inlet, from a small island. <1>
Dry stone trap similar in many ways to Gorad Ddu. Walls 1.2 to 1.5m wide standing to a maximum height of over 3m. Trap runs parallel to the shore from a small island for 100m. The NE end is ruinous but appears to turn back to the shore and form a sluice. This arm appears to incorporate an outcrop, the fish being trapped in a natural channel running parallel to the long arm of the wall. The wall is generally well preserved but breaches could be seen at several places along its length. No serious erosion was visible. (Hopewell, 2000).
