„The Battlements of Caerphilly“

from the gallery of Ian Lewis

Looking across the western moat to the towering battlements of Caerphilly Castle in the centre of Caerphilly, South Wales. Castell Caerffili (in Welsh) was built in the late 13th century by Gilbert de Clare in order to secure this part of Wales from being taken over by the Welsh leader Llewellyn. Construction was begun in 1268 but the castle was immediately attacked! Building recommenced in 1271 and now It is the largest castle in ground area in Wales.
