Castell y Blaidd (Wolf's Castle)

Castell y Blaidd is not a castle in the traditional sense, but a ringwork defensive enclosure of Norman vintage, open at one end like a horseshoe. There are no verifiable remains of construction within the defences, which sit on a high elevation near a pass through the hills.

The castle ramparts describe an open-ended oval, defined by ditches and counter-scarp earthworks. The entire enclosure measures 35 metres wide and 55 metres long, with a wide entrance opening at the west end. It is possible that the enclosure was never finished.

The Glyndwr's Way long distance path runs beside the site.
