The view looking up from the welsh side ! According to the details inside the Castle a secondary ring wall was also conceived but not constructed ?
Must have taken some Labour to put those windows through the extremely thick walls ! Despite being a national trust Castle details on the Castle itself were slightly lacking, the focus more on the more recent inhabitants.
The Castle does have an excellent and atmospheric dungeon and lots of opportunity to dress up 🙂
We have now headed further south to Caerleon near Newport to visit some of the excellent Roman remains. These were actually the inspiration for the trip when I saw them on U tube but realised I had never visited them. The small town is well worth a visit with the well preserved amphitheatre
One can definately imagine the gladiators fighting it out here
There is a small but interesting museum
Some well preserved baths used by the troops
And a significant barracks complex all of these within easy walking distance and all free to visit 😀 if you get the chance there is also a lovely and esoteric cafe in the Main Street.
