Historic Landscape Characterisation

Mawddach - Area 23 Fieldscape above Llwyngwril (PRN 18353)



Historic background

Most of the fields shown on the 1839 Llangelynnin tithe map appear to be larger than those that exist today, which implies that most of these fields were created since that time. There are few settlements and archaeological sites here.

Key historic landscape characteristics

Drystone walls, field patterns

The area is characterised by its distinctive pattern of drystone field walls on the seaward-facing hillslopes above and around Llwyngwril.
