Dinbych Castle

Dinbych Castle

Denbigh Castle - Castell Dinbych North Wales. Denbigh, United Kingdom.Of the mighty fortresses that formed King Edward I's infamous "ring of castles", built to encircle and subdue the native Welsh in the late 13th century, four have been named World Heritage Sites. These four, Caernarfon, Conwy, Harlech and Beaumaris, are undoubtedly the most visited and best known of Edward's fortresses, and probably the most explored of the castles of Wales. However, several others were erected to buttress Edward's victory over the Welsh. Like their better known siblings, they have survived the centuries and are certainly worthy of our attention. One of the least known of these castles is in Denbigh, a fine town in North East Wales. Though ruinous in comparison to the Big Four in the north west, Denbigh Castle remains an intriguing and distinctive site.Reaching Denbigh Castle may be a bit daunting, especially if you approach it from the center of town. But, perseverance is the name of the game, and, after a rather harrowing climb along the narrow, winding lane that ends at the castle entrance, you will be glad you made the effort. The massive walls and powerful gatehouse belie the castle's former glory, but, with the tiniest bit of effort, it is easy to imagination medieval Denbigh and the intimidating effect the castle would have had on both foe and friend. www.castlewales.com
