Castle, Newport, South Wales by Richard Rogerson
Castle, Newport, South Wales

Newport Castle is a 14th century stone rectangular courtyard fortress, founded by Hugh d'Audele. In the 15th century, Humphrey Stafford strengthened the castle but sadly only the east front now survives. The high curtain wall, powerfully flanked by a central tower with a water-gate and two octagonal angle towers with spur buttresses, stands on the west bank of the River Usk. LinkExternal link
