A Word a Week Challenge: Castles

A selection of wonderful Welsh history

Above is Laugharne Castle in Carmarthenshire. Laugharne is perhaps best known for its associations with Dylan Thomas, but for the past 20 years, the picturesque castle, sited on the Taf estuary, has been the subject of painstaking archaeological investigation and gradual restoration. There was probably a Norman castle here by the early 12th century, though the upstanding remains can be traced back no further than the work of the de Brian family in the late 13th century.

Below several other South Wales castles.

    • Thank you for your comment. Most of these castles were used as fortification against the English or in the case of the borders – the Welsh. That sort of history is something that Disney can’t create 🙂

I'd like to hear your opinion
