Skenfrith Castle

Skenfrith Castle © Crown copyright (2013) Visit Wales

Skenfrith Castle can be found some ten miles west of Ross-on-Wye and just north of Monmouth and is definitely worth a visit. The visible remains were built by Hubert de Burgh, Earl of Kent between the years of 1219 and 1232 on top of a previous castle on the site that probably dates back to the Norman Conquest. Originally, the round keep would have been crowned by a wooden fighting top with arrow loops to provide an effective, all round field of fire.
