Magnificent ruin - one of the ring of castles built to subjugate the Welsh by those vicious English monarchs.

King Edward I liked his castles to be on the coast but at Rhuddlan, several miles inland, the plan was to use a river instead. Just one problem – the meandering Clwyd wasn’t quite in the right place. So Edward conscripted hundreds of ditch-diggers to deepen and divert its course. More than seven…

Around a 10 minute drive away Rhuddlan Castle is well worth a visit. Also next to a river which is a nice walk

Establishment
“Mighty fortress evokes the drama of medieval warfare Denbigh Castle is all about drama. Cross the drawbridge into the triple-towered gatehouse and you’ll hear the portcullis thundering down, chains rattling and the din of horses and marching soldiers. Don’t be too alarmed. It’s all down to sensors and the wonders of modern technology. But it’s a powerful reminder that this great fortress crowning a rocky outcrop above the Vale of Clwyd played a vital role in the wars that shaped Wales. It was once the royal residence of Dafydd ap Gruffudd, whose attack on nearby Hawarden Castle provoked the English king Edward I to mount a full-scale invasion. By 1282 Denbigh was the in hands of the king’s commander Henry de Lacy. He lost no time in building a huge stone fortress with extensive town walls on top of Dafydd’s stronghold. But the Welsh weren’t finished just yet. The half-complete castle was attacked and captured and, by the time they got it back, the English had changed the blueprint. They made the curtain walls much higher, added the imposing gatehouse and inserted an ingenious ‘sally port’ – a secure secret doorway – so defenders could sneak out in an emergency.”

“Ruthin is a small historic market town in Denbighshire, North Wales, overlooking the River Clwyd in the beautiful Vale of Clwyd. Ruthin has a long, exciting and interesting history spanning over 700 years including scandal, battle and siege. Today it is the administrative centre of Denbighshire. The name ‘Ruthin’ comes from the Welsh laguage words rhudd (red) and din (fort), and refers to the colour of the red sandstone which is found in the area, and from which the castle was constructed in 1277-1284. The original name of Ruthin was ‘Castell Coch yng Ngwern-fôr’ (red castle in the sea-swamps). The older parts of the town, the castle and St Peter’s Square are located on top of the hill overlooking the Vale of Clwyd. ”
