Hendre Road, Pencoed, Bridgend 2003

Dyfed Archaeological Trust carried out a rescue excavation on the site of a medieval and post-medieval farmstead, Cae’r-llysi, during a residential development by Redrow Homes (SW) Ltd. on land at Hendre Road, Pencoed, Glamorgan (SS948817), in 2002. Previous assessment and evaluation had indicated that the site had been occupied from the medieval period through to its eventual abandonment in the mid 19th century. Pre-excavation damage had removed most of the site, but enough evidence, including parts of two medieval drains, was recovered to confirm the long occupancy at Cae’r-llysi. Traces of an 17th or 18th century building were also recorded, along with other features relating to the development and use of the site as a small dairy farm.
