Ffridd Faldwyn

Iron Age Hillfort

Ffridd Faldwyn is an Iron Age Hillfort in northern Powys, in the former county of Montgomeryshire, It is sited on a prominent hill west of Montgomery, close to but higher than Montgomery Castle, overlooking the River Severn. It is one of the largest hill-forts in Wales. Like similar sites, it developed over an extended period of time and was substantially expanded during the Iron Age ultimately becoming a multivallate site which probably served as a regional centre for the Ordovices tribe.
