Caergwrle Castle activity header

Caergwrle Castle, Caergwrle

Caergwrle Castle
Is a grade 1 listed, 13th Century castle. Park in the centre of the village and the castle is a short walk from this, up a steep footpath next to the town’s cenotaph; although tarmac up to a point, the footpath becomes a dirt track which may be difficult for wheelchair access. It is a pleasant walk through the woods and children will enjoy running around the small ruins. In the 16th century a quarry opened below the castle cliffs, digging so far into the hillside that part of the castle collapsed into it therefore there is a steep drop.
