After Foel Fynyddau followed forest track and then up by side of fence. Hill fort ramparts higher than surrounding ground.PeterD15/08/2017
From ENE following edge of forest. Difficult to say whether natural HP is overtopped by earthworks at E side of hill fort (SS 76613 93584), or if it's 30m E at the fence junction (SS 76642 93595). It's there somewhere though.jonglew23/01/2017
