|Description ||Promontory Fort at Porth y Rhaw near Solva|
An amazing example of an Iron Age promontory fort with a multiple bank and ditch defensive system and panoramic views. One of many in this area.
The seaward side of the fort has fallen hundreds of feet into the sea but the landlocked side shows just how strong the defences were. The banks and troughs are clearly visible after 2000 years. There would have been up to eight roundhouses within the safety of the defences.
