Following the announcement of a short ‘firebreak’ lockdown by the Welsh Government as of 6pm on Friday 23 October, all Cadw staffed and unstaffed sites will be closed until further notice.
Until we can welcome you back in person, you can visit us virtually through our Open Doors Online 3D tours. All you’ll need is a mobile phone or a desk-top computer — of if you have a VR head-set you can be fully-immersed inside your selected adventure.
Diolch and we hope to see you again soon.
Prehistoric site with an extensive history
Though all that remains of this Neolithic (New Stone Age) settlement is a single bank, excavations have revealed a site with a particularly long history. Its origins stretch back to a circular enclosure featuring a bank and external ditch built in the late Neolithic era or early Bronze Age. Originally thought to be a ceremonial henge monument, finds of pottery, post holes and flint and bronze tools are in fact those of a settlement.
The locals must have liked the place. Castell Bryn Gwyn was used far beyond the Neolithic period, with archaeological finds suggesting it was still inhabited as late as 1st-century Roman times.
Daily 10am - 4pm

Closed 24, 25, 26 December and 1 January
