Cefnlly's Castle


A while ago I was asked if I had any photos of a place called Cefnlly's Castle I had to tell the person I did not but I had been near the place and would go back and get some photos. These are some of the photo's I took that day with my wife.

I took this the day before and realised it was not as easy as I thought so we came back the next day after I worked out a way to climb the hill.





This is the track we took at first along the side of the hill to get to the castle at the top. You can see my wife taking a photo of her own





She was taking photos of this area




 This is where we had to get to, ended up going across the side of the hill near here as the track seemed to go to a farm and I did not want our dogs upsetting anyone




The top, the mound you see is the remains of the castle
 Bit of a closer view of the castle




This looks back to the other end of the hill the second castle which was here once




You can see lots of mounds from the second castle which formed the ditches





 Here we look across part of the hillside




This looks away from the top of the castle to some woods




This is St Michael s Church you can see at the bottom of the hill





View across the top of the hill to the second castle




below is a flock of sheep which are being rounded up by the dog




Another view from top of the castle hill





some of the surrounding countryside




and a shot as we went down

This is a stitched shot of the river below

  1. Great photos of beautiful landscapes. I've just been and read some of the history and that made it even more interesting. It is hard to comprehend history going back so far and to be able to see evidences for it still in the landscape - fascinating!

  2. The countryside around there is just stunning. All that green is something I don't see much of here in the desert. It must have been enjoyable exploring around here.
