Raglan Castle

hi folks,
we moved on and stopped at this castle that Cromwell knocked about a bit.  Raglan Castle was the last castle to be built in Wales and its surrender marked the end of the Civil War, it was very imposing from all angles and a pity that it was so derelict.

I thought you might like to see the buildings from various angles!

This doorway shows how the foundations are sinking due to age.

Its very sad the the castle was destroyed.

In the grounds we met Alice, who is still very much a puppy, with her owner.

Looking out across the Welsh country side from the castle grounds.

Then we set off for the Wye Valley.........

stopping at this lovely pub where we set up nearby for the night.

Off we went for a walk along the bank of the River Wye before settling down for the night.

The next morning we set off for The Forest of Dean, but that is another story.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

Luv Mike
