White Castle is the best preserved of the Monmouthshire fortresses known as the ‘Three Castles’, which also includes Grosmont and Skenfrith.
The fort was established by the Normans in the wake of the invasion of England in 1066 and would have initially been built from wood and earth. Much of what you see today was built by King Edward I, who took possession of the castles in 1254. His renovations on White Castle are a precursor to the mighty fortresses he would go on to build.
