The Castles of North Wales


This book is a comprehensive guide to the history and architecture of 38 castles and fortified houses dating from the 12th century to the 15th century in the counties of Anglesey, Caernarfon, Denbigh, Flint and Meirionnydd.

Following an introduction outlining how castles in North Wales developed are two Gazetteers illustrated with many plans, photographs and old prints.

Included in the gazetteer are the famous castles built by Edward 1 and his barons in the late 13th century, and also all the castles built by the Welsh princes which are generally less well preserved and some mostly forgotten about.

Two lists give some information on another 35 sites, mostly earthworks on private land.
