Hafod y Gelyn in Abergwyngregyn
. Abergwyngregyn Gwynedd Wales
Hafod y Gelyn is a prehistoric settlement to be found above the Aber Valley close to Abergwyngregyn in North Wales. The square yard with a large round house foundation can be seen. Just outside is another free standing house. There are several farmsteads in the area, either iron age or of Roman date.. Bronze Age burial chambers are nearby. Directions: Follow the lane south from the village to the car park at Bont Newydd. Cross the bridge and continue up the hill. There is a grass road called on the Ordnance Map the "Roman Road," which ends in a gate. Passing through this gate and keeping to the right, a small cottage known as Hafod-y-Celyn is soon passed on the right ; a little higher up the slopes of Foel Dduarth the path that leads into the Anafon Valley may be seen skirting the slopes of the mountain. Between the wall that bounds the road just before the gate is reached on the right there are some fields that extend right down to the Anafon river and southwards as far as the cottage (now disused) Hafod-y-Celyn.
