Conwy Castle by kalaryder
Clear

Conwy Castle is in the town of Conwy on the north coast of Wales. The town walls were built, on the instruction of Edward I of England, between 1283 and 1289, as part of his conquest of the principality of Wales. Conwy was the original site of Aberconwy Abbey, founded by Llywelyn the Great. Edward and his troops took over the abbey site and moved the monks down the Conwy valley to a new site at Maenan. The parish church still retains some parts of the original abbey church in the east and west walls. English settlers were given incentives to move to the walled garrison town, which for decades the Welsh were forbidden from entering.(Wikipedia)

    I have been there! We used to when we were children – I loved it – are all the little house along the shore still there?

  • I don’t think anything much as changed in the town from the look of it. A great place. Glad you remembered it.

    It still amazes me how they built these magnificent buildings on the side of cliffs, stone by stone etc; this is a great perspective and narrative ~ Kala……….Chris.

  • It is an amazing castle, and well worth visiting
