Tips

  • Dan Hobson

    Hay Castle is a medieval fortress and a 17th century Jacobean mansion house. The fort was built in the late 12th century and is considered to be one of the greatest medieval defense structures on the border of England and Wales still standing. However, this comes in spite of its past. The castle was attacked and burnt several times during the first and second Barons' Wars, the wars with the Welsh princes, the rebellion of Owain Glyndŵr, as well as the Wars of the Roses.
