On the way home from Porthmadog, North Wales last September we stopped off at the National Trust property at Chirk Castle and for three weeks I am featuring a series of shots I took there on three different themes.
Taken from the Car Park area looking up the hill towards the castle. It is appears to be more of a stately home in the guise of a castle, but as you will see it is a very good place to visit.
Chirk Castle is a 700 year old marcher fortress, which commands fine views over the surrounding countryside. It was built in the late 13th century by Roger Mortimer, Justice of North Wales for Edward 1. The castle was sold for 5,000 UK pounds to Sir Thomas Myddelton in 1595 and his descendants continue to live in part of the castle today.
Thanks for all your wonderful comments on my longish North Wales series, they are all very much appreciated.
