Beaumaris Castle: Beaumaris was the last of the great castles to be built by Edward I in North Wales, part of an "iron ring" of fortresses designed to stamp the English king's authority on the conquered Welsh population. The castle was never completed, with only a partial inner wall and gatehouse. Though because of its unfinished state, it was never damaged or slighted in the English Civil War, unlike many of its peers.

Legend

It is said to be home to strange echoes of chanting which have been heard by visitors in the small chapel area. The feeling of being watched has also been felt in the long dark corridors and an over-all sense of loneliness can be felt.
