Description : Site of Llangewydd church in what later became Llangewydd Grange (not on site of later grange buildings); represented by grass covered platform set in an E-W direction. It is 21m long & 6m wide though spread to the N at the E end. Traces of a stony partly curvilinear enclosure noted (Llewellyn 1895); which OS fielkdworkers suggest is an integral part of the site rather than a modsern enclosure. Platform and bank had been severely plough damaged by 1968 (OS card SS 88 SE 9), but were still visible in 1986 (Cadw Field Monument Warden report). ECM PRN 177 said to have come from Llangewydd church (and PRN 175, but this is dubious). Evans 2003: GGAT 73 Early-Medieval Ecclesiastical Sites Project database
