    ... me, this is a sad castle because it had such great potential to be perfect for its purpose and yet never got to prove itself.
    It is known as the history teacher's fantasy castle with its 13th century classic proportions and perfect symmetry - sigh!

    ... of it, arriving well before noon to tour the very large castle built by Edward I. A royal castle, only three kings ever stayed there: Edward I, his son Edward II, and Richard II (great-grandson of Edward II). The signs posted around were well done, though I wish there’d been more of them.

    ... area, vegetated with heather and bracken and grazing Welsh Mountain sheep which are generally hardier and smaller than the other breeds. We drove to Lake Vyrnwy which is a reservoir supplying water for Liverpool. We have been here before, but had dinner here at the Tavern.
