Gwynedd - Wales

The Romans were the first to build a fort here which they named, Segontium but around 1090 Earl Hugh de Avranches built, on the present site, a motte and bailey castle.

In 1283 King Edward I commanded a strong castle and town walls to be built.

It is believed the renown engineer and master mason James of St George was the architect and that the work was put under the charge of Master Walter of Hereford.

The result is the impressive castle which we see today overlooking the tidal River Seiont and Menai Strait.
