This Scheduled Ancient Monument (Cadw SAM No. AN093) is a roundhouse settlement dating at least back to Roman times. It is also called Cae Marh Hut Group. There are several huts with thick walls, some standing up to 1.4m high.[3][4] Some of the huts walls are now obscured by a thicket, while others are visible as wall lines in the lawns of Marianglas caravan park. The location is indicated on the ground through a signboard by the Ministry of Public Building and Works (which dates the sign to 1962-70).[5]
