|Moel y Gaer Hillfort Llanbedr|
Located on a spur off the Clwydian Range, it boasts commanding views over the Vale of Clwyd.
Moel y Gaer Llanbedr was built during the Iron Age around 2,500 years ago.
The hillfort has just one set of ramparts (the earthen banks and ditches) which would have roundhouses made of timber inside in which people lived.
There is are two entrances into the hillfort. The one to the north is complex, with banks acting as a funnel to make it harder for people to attack.
There is also a D-shaped annex attached to the side. Maybe this was used to keep animals in?
Whilst no footpaths lead directly to Moel y Gaer stunning views of this fascinating hillfort can be seen from the Offa's Dyke Trail to the east and from a public footpath to the west. Start both routes from Moel Famau Iron Gate car park. For public transport links, please visit traveline-cymru.org.uk or call 0871 200 22 33
