Considered by RCAHMW to date from the C18, but it is most likely to be from the end of the century.
Built of local limestone rubble. Circular in plan with a carefully constructed corbelled stone roof finishing in a knob. There is a narrow opening halfway up the dome to provide ventilation and a low doorway into the rectangular walled pen which itself has a narrow gate.
The interior has not been altered since it was in use.
Included for its special historic interest as one of the rare surviving corbelled roof pigsties of South Wales.
