Listing Description

Rhuddlan CastleThe Castle is a stone Edwardian concentric fortress, built in impressive symmetry. Dominated by the diamond-shaped inner ward with its high curtain wall, flanked on the angles by massive four storey twin-towered gatehouses and round towers. A broad ditch with a stone revetment and flanked by small buttresses and turrets protects the narrow octagonal outer ward. The River Clwyd was canalized to give access from the sea and the defended water-gate and dock are still overlooked by the four storey Gillot's Tower.
