Llanddoged is a small village which lies in the hills a little over a mile to the north of Llanrwst, in north Wales.

It has a primary school, a park, and a church called St Doged which the village is named after.

A Roman road passes close to Llanddoged, indicated by the nearby place-name: 'Sarn Ddu' shown on the map as the name of the local Sewage-Works. Sarn, which means causeway in Welsh, has been commonly used to name Roman roads such as Sarn Helen. Sarn is also used to indicate defences against water (flood, tide) where these, like Roman roads, involve significant built-up lines of layers of stones was not a causeway for defence against water.

A possible route on which this may stand is a NNW-SSE road starting close to the edge of the east bank of Afon Gonwy, just SE of the Tan-yr-Allt building in Coed Bortho, facing the confirmed Roman Fort at Caerhun, suggesting this road may have been to a Ferry/ford. It may have run SSE via Sarn Ddu towards Nebo & the A5, but this is still being researched. Another possible route is a WSW-ENE road the route of which may run close to the nearby Caer Faban, another unconfirmed possible Roman site, in which case Llanddoged / Sarn Ddu may stand in the vicinity of Roman Cross-roads.
