I took this picture a few weeks ago at a favourite spot…
The picture is taken up through the centre of the keep at Dinefwr Castle, one of the seats of the kings of Deheubarth. Beautifully circular, striking when you consider it’s over 800 years old (although I’m not sure exactly how much restoration CADW have carried out and I seem to recall that the Victorians or their contemporaries messed about with the castle a fair bit turning it into more of a folly than a stronghold, so what we see here is probably considerably younger than 800 years old). I guess there was some sort of formwork involved… now that’s what I call architecture.
I thought I’d share this one as well.
That’s Dryslwyn Castle in the distance, with Paxton’s Tower on the hill to the left, photographed down the Tywi Valley (the river is in the foreground) from Dinefwr Castle.
