The most technically perfect, medieval castle.....

... on all.
This castle was begun in 1295, on the order of King Edward I, in reaction to a Welsh rising. Although work initially progressed rapidly, funds were eventually siphoned off tp deal with troubles in Scotland, and the castle was never completed.

... us!) So we walked - VERY uphill (and Ron's two cases are VERY heavy). We went further than 1/2 mile, to no avail. There are NO addresses, per se, so we didn't even know if we were close.

Well, we are officially having a heatwave. We have had the most incredible hot weather ever since we've been back from France; this morning the campers next door said they have never heard of having 25 degrees in Snowdonia! People are being warned to stay indoors and turn off any electrical appliances, as they generate extra heat, and there are health professionals on the radio giving people hints about how to stay cool. ...
