|Description ||At the base of Holyhead Mountain, is this impressive, substantial group of hut circles. In the 1860s in excess of 50 buildings were recorded, but now numbers around 20.
Active settlement was on this location for sometime, and not all the remains seen are contemporary with each other.
Finds at this location, and very nearby, date occupation from mesolithic to Romano British times.
The hut circles seen are obvious, but there are a number of square features. The guidebook likens them to souterrains, and were probably used as storage structures.
This is looking south west, across a hut circle, showing the proximity of the Irish Sea, and what a very exposed location this can be.|
