Last month, on our holiday in Anglesey, we’ve been to Caernarfon Castle, it’s an World Heritage Site and part of CADW.
The Castle is built like a fortress. One of its features are the polygonal towers, not round like most castles. The site of this castle had previously been the location of a Norman motte and bailey castle. Before that it was a Roman fort. It was built during the reign of King Edward I. It was finished in 1330. A couple of hundred years later the castles weren’t as important and it felt into disrepair.
In 1969, the investiture of the Prince of Wales, HRH Prince Charles took place here. The stand is made with welsh slate. Caernarfon Castle was used for the first time for the investiture of the Prince of Wales in 1911.
