Moel Faner Hillfort


With an entrance facing towards the north-east, this oval shaped hillfort is probably from the Iron Age. It lies at a height of 950 feet, on a promontory of a hill overlooking the Nannau estate and the Mawddach valley. The fort was small, being about 0.5 acres and the single wall enclosing the fort would have been about six feet high, but it is now quite trampled. There is no evidence of roundhouses within the fort but there may have been some dwellings in there. These days, there are some modern sheltered cairns built within the walls by climbers.
