Historic Landscape Characterisation

Trawsfynydd - Area 14 Intermediary hill slopes – north side of Cwm Prysor (PRN 18280)

Historic background

This area of intermediary hill slopes is similar to area 11 (the southern side of Cwm Prysor). The large, irregular enclosures which differentiate this area from areas 15 (unenclosed upland above) and 12 (enclosed fields below) probably represent post-1840 enclosure/encroachment of the upland margins along this area. There are no farms or evidence of earlier settlement within it, just a couple of sheepfolds.

Key historic landscape characteristics

Irregular enclosures

A few large, irregular drystone enclosures, which bear little relationship to the underlying topography and are not directly associated with any farmsteads, are the only historic landscape features here.
