Caer Drewyn Hillfort

Unlike other hillforts in the area, Caer Drewyn doesn’t have great earth banks or ditches around it. Instead it has a large dry stone wall, the remains of which are still standing. It continued to be used long after the Iron Age had ended and legend has it that Owain Glyndŵr gathered his troops here after he proclaimed himself King of Wales in 1400.

The closest parking is at the local swimming pool, located on the B5437 opposite the end of the bridge over the Dee, on the A5. The site can be reached by public footpath signposted on the B5437, next to the swimming pool.
