Castell Deganwy Castle by Jonathan Wilkins
Castell Deganwy Castle

The ruined walls of Deganwy Castle surmount a crag of Ordovician rhyolitic tuff. The original castle was of wood, but it was destroyed by the Welsh lest it fall to the English. The present walls are what remains of reconstruction by Henry III from 1245, although it was again destroyed by the Welsh in 1283.
