The Claypits

Map of centre of Llanteg

The map shows the A477 before the Chapel was built on the other corner

(The road running down the map is the one off the A477 going down towards Llanteg Park)
This was a small area that was given to the village when the commons were enclosed in the 19th century.

It actually consists of two areas - one was the Claypits (for gathering clay to keep the home fires burning) and the other was a Quarry - for supplying stones for the upkeep of the parish roads.

The Claypits is now a completely overgrown area - along the side of the A477 eastwards from Mountain Chapel Gardens towards the Village Hall.

Its hoped that this area can be cleared and made a site that can once again be used by villagers.
