to my section on the castles of the Welsh Princes dear visitor.
Perhaps there are no more emotive places in Wales than these relics
of hand built rock, for today one can visit them and almost touch
and feel the past. Many times during a late evening I have
visited some of them to try and get the 'feel' of the place, to
set in my mind what it must have been like to live in them as darkness closed in. We hear
today from doctors 'O you're suffering from stress' I wonder just
how much stress the occupants of these old relics were under, knowing
that they could be attacked and killed at any time.
my map may not be perfect to scale, and the location of the castles
may not be exactly to the nearest mile. It is designed to give you
the rough position of those castles you will find on the pages of
Welsh castles have also been placed on the map, for they are castles
that you will find mentioned in other sections of this website
