Pen Caer: Garn Fawr and Strumble Head

Six historic landscape character areas were identified in the Pen Caer: Garn Fawr and Strumble Head landscape. These range from the highly exposed coastal strip with Strumble Head Lighthouse to a ridge of high moorland on which the stone-built revetments of Garn Fawr Iron Age hillfort are a dominant feature. Fields divided by dry-stone walls and banks, and dispersed farms lie between the coast and moorland ridge. Apart from shelterbelts close to farms it is a virtually treeless landscape. Included is the late 19th century and 20th century industrial harbour and housing development at Goodwick.
