Castell Bach is a mysterious ancient coastal fort in Ceredigion that is being greatly affected by coastal erosion. The date of the site is unknown, but it is thought that it was first constructed during prehistoric times and used by past people as a special meeting place.
The fort comprises a double ditch and bank with a larger concentric bank and ditch defining a possible outer annex area. The inner enclosure appears to surround the area where the small off-shore islet may have previously been joined to the mainland by a precarious land bridge, now partially lost due to erosion. Castell Bach will be carefully monitored and investigated by the CHERISH Project to unlocked more of site’s history before more is lost.
