The Castle, Mongomery, Montgomeryshire
It has to be said; there isn't a lot left of Montgomery Castle but parking and entry is free. It is worth a look especially at the views.
This shows the modern bridge which gives visitors access over the deep ditch surrounding the castle with views of the ruins on the skyline.
Inside the main part of the ruined castle. The building of this version of the castle was started in 1223.
Building carried on until 1228 to construct the entire inner ward on a great rock above the town of Montgomery. This work consisted of the gatehouse, two D-shaped towers and the apartments which crowded around the curtain wall of the inner ward. In 1228 there was an unsuccessful attack by Prince Llywelyn so the middle and outer wards were then added to the castle.
This shows part of the curtain wall in the Outer Ward and the view beyond but what a view!
The remains of the Kitchen. The area made by laying stones in a circular confiuration may have been the base of an oven.
