Strongholds – Places of Strength, Security, Power and Advantage

Ancient castles were places of refuge, might and were of critical strategic importance to rulers. Built at enormous cost, these fortresses were feats of powerful and stirring architecture. They functioned perfectly, could endure onslaughts and launch offensives to protect interests of those within their mighty walls. Conwy Castle in North Wales was such a place. It was built between 1283 and 1289 by King Edward I during his conquest of Wales.

Over the centuries, Conwy Castle played a vital role in several wars until it was deliberately ruined, or slighted, by Parliament in 1665 to prevent it from being used as a stronghold again.

Today, Conwy Castle still stands proudly, cloaked in its past and secrets, on the rock where its first stone was laid 736 years ago. It captivated artists like William Turner and inspires awe in people of all ages.

Yet, some things never change.
