|Description ||Castle-an-Dinas, there were three lines of defence that go all the the way around this hillfort. There was an inner wall which you can just see evidence of inside of the hillfort from the tower (most noticeable on the right side of the photo). There was then a second wall which Rogers Tower (folly - 1798) has been built on top of, beyond this there is a bank. On the North west side of the hillfort (not in this photo) there is a further bank and ditch but this is incomplete/unfinished and does not go right around the whole fort.|
Close to the bottom of the photo is a Ordnance Survey Trig point. To the left of the trig point between 9 and 11'o'Clock is a circular feature that it is suggested could be the site of a hut circle 7metres in diameter.
