Castles


The ‘Three Castles’ of Grosmont, Skenfrith and White Castle were built to control the border country, known as the Marches, between Herefordshire and Wales.

GROSMONT (1 mile from Part-y-Seal) Grosmont castle, built by the Normans was originally an earth and timber stronghold that was later rebuilt in stone. In the 13th C the castle was redesigned to include the gatehouse and circular towers and in the 14th it was restructured again to provide apartments fit for a noble household. In the 15thC the castle was besieged in the rebellion led by Welsh leader Owain Glyndŵr. Read more…

SKENFRITH (4 miles from Part-y-Seal) Skenfrith castle was originally a Norman motte and bailey, built beside the river to defend the border. In 1220 the site was leveled and rebuilt  with 4 corner towers, a gatehouse and round keep. Modifications were made in the 13th century to the residential buildings by Hubert de Burgh.

WHITE CASTLE (9.5 miles from Part-y-Seal) White Castle, the best preserved and most imposing of the trio of castles was originally constructed from wood and earth.
