Gwyned - Wales

This small Castle was built c.1220 by Llywelyn ap Lorwerth ‘The Great’. Its function was to guard the main route through north Wales.

It was captured by King Edward’s forces in 1283 and garrisoned but because it was an inland fort and difficult to defend and supply, by 1290 it became obsolete and was abandoned.

Later in the 15th century, an upper storey was added by a local Lord, Maredudd ap Ieuan.
