Summary :
Please note that some of the sources contain information that, as yet, has not been included in this description field. This will be updated in due course.

Phillips notes that key features of the motte (present area of 801.953m²) at Llanfihangel Crucorney (also known as Tre-Fedw) include a stand of fir trees on top of its partial remains, evidence of quarrying on the north-east side in the 1920s which heavily damaged the site, a circling ditch to the south and east of the motte, and its strategic location on a natural ridge along the river with maximum defence and control of movement along the Abergavenny to Hereford Valley. Phillips interprets the site as being an early motte and bailey with inner defense issues (Phillips 2004).
