Chapel Hill Camp, Merthyr Mawr House

Iron Age Hillfort

The monument is characterized by the remains of an earthwork enclosure, the exact date or nature of which remains uncertain, but is believed to be of later prehistoric or medieval origin. It consists of a single bank and ditch, which are generally reduced to a scarp in the present day. The enclosure encloses an area that measures approximately 92 meters from east to west and 68 meters from north to south.

Within the interior of the enclosure, towards the northwest, there is a lesser enclosure that contains the remains of St Roque’s Chapel, which is a Scheduled Ancient Monument identified as GM247. The details about the chapel and its remains are not specified, but it indicates the presence of a structure of potential historical or cultural significance within the enclosure.
