Clwyd - Wales

After the treaty of Aberconway on the 9th November 1277, King Edward I. had three castles built, the start of his ‘Iron ring’ of Royal castles for the purpose of securing his lines of supply and keeping the Welsh bottled up in the mountains of the north west of Wales. One of these castles was Flint with Master Richard Lenginour and James of St. George  in charge of the building works.

By 1282 Flint castle and the two others were practically completed.

During the civil war, the castle was successfully besieged by Parliamentary forces. It was slighted in 1652 .
