Castell Bach Archaeology Day

Booking not required

Refreshments available at Caerwedros Memorial Hall

This summer, join us to explore some of Wales’s most exciting, and vulnerable, coastal archaeology sites. CHERISH’s team of experts will be leading outreach events from May to September at archaeological and environmental sites which are being affected by climate change.

Explore climate change and archaeology at the edge of Wales

Join the CHERISH team at this intriguing Iron Age promontory fort. Try your hand at some archaeological survey or come for a site tour.

The CHERISH project is working across the coasts of Wales and Ireland to investigate archaeological sites at risk from Climate Change. Come and learn about the work we’ve been doing at the National Trust’s Castell Bach fort, Cwmtydu, Ceredigion and try your hand at the kind of archaeological survey we use to investigate and record sites before they are lost.

The CHERISH team of archaeologists will be onsite all day to answer your questions, and there will be site tours at 11am and 2pm. Our exhibition will be on display in nearby Neuadd Goffa Caerwedros Memorial Hall, with more information about the project and the work of the Royal Commission of Ancient and Historic Monuments for Wales.

Castell Bach can be reached along the Ceredigion Coastal Path. Parking is available at Cwmtydu beach, where there are also public toilets and a cafe. A few parking places are also available near St Tysilio’s Church (at SN 363 573). There will be refreshments, toilets and parking available at Neuadd Goffa Caerwedros Memorial Hall, which is approximately a 45 minute walk from Castell Bach or 5 minute drive from Cwmtydu beach/St Tysilio’s.

The walk to Castell Bach is steep in places and no facilities are available onsite. Please dress appropriately for the outdoors, whatever the weather. Bring water and any medication you need. We would appreciate caution from attendees in relation to Covid-19: please do not attend if you have symptoms of illness or have tested positive.
