Skenfrith Castle
Skenfrith, Monmouthshire

Skenfrith Castle is a twelfth century fortress forming part of the Castles of the Trilateral in the Monnow Valley. However, it was built after the Normans had conquered Wales, and so wasn't part of the original Mono River System of defences. It was dismantled during the reign of Edward IV, and much of the stone was used for buildings in the village.

The castle is cared for by CADW on behalf of the National Trust

How to get here:

»

Road: A40 - Follow the A40 to Monmouth. Exit at the roundabout and head into Monmouth, then turn left onto the A466 (Hereford Road). Follow this (into England), and then turn left onto the B4521. Follow this (back into Wales) and Skenfrith and the castle will be on the right-hand side as you cross the river. (8.5 miles, 17m) +
