Grosmont Castle

One of the three castles in the Marches, Grosmont is a good example of a Norman motte and bailey castle. Likely to have been built in the early 12th century, the exact date of is still a matter of debate. Much of the original walls are still standing, with one stone staircase leading up onto the battlements. The 'motte' or moat is mostly dry now.
It's hard to imagine a more picturesque location for a castle. Grosmont is a good contender for the most beautiful village in Wales.
