Caerphilly - Mid Glamorgan
Caerphilly Castle is enormous, and is one
of the most impressive fortifications in the United Kingdom.
It features complex land and water defenses.
A broad range of medieval architecture
is used in this castle that covers a 30-acre expanse. This
castle is famous for its southeastern tower that leans to
the point that it looks as if it is frozen in mid-fall. Parliamentarians
failed to demolish it, a testament to the strength of the
Caerphilly was built in the 13th century
and historians consider this structure to be the finest and
earliest example of a true, regular concentric fortification
in all of the United Kingdom. This castle houses a collection
of massive, working siege engines like trebuchets and catapults.
