Mathrafal Castle

UK»Wales»Powys»Mathrafal Castle

Mathrafal Castle: Roughly 100 m square rectangular compound defended by ditches. Little remains of the original walls. The remaining structures probably date from their construction around the 11th century and probably replaced an earlier hillfort, about 1 km away, which may date from around the time of the fall of the neighbouring Kingdom of Pengwern in the 7th century, or perhaps as early as 520 when the capital of Powys was moved from the old Roman town of Viroconium Cornoviorum.
