Aberystwyth Castle

Aberystwyth Castle is an Edwardian fortress that was built during the First Welsh War in the late 13th century. It was begun during Edward I’s first Welsh campaign at the same time as work started at Flint, Rhuddlan and Builth Wells.

The castle was not complete when the Welsh briefly captured and burned it in 1282. Later work ceased in 1289 and the castle was subjected to a lengthy siege during the revolt of Madog ap Llywelyn in 1294-5.
