Life through a lens

Aberystwyth Castle

In 2019, I visited Aberystwyth. It was the childhood home of my Wife’s paternal family.

One of the things I was eager to see was Aberystwyth Castle.

It’s a Grade I listed, Edwardian fortress located on the sea front in Aberystwyth, Ceredigion, Mid Wales. And it was built in response to the First Welsh War in the late 13th century, replacing an earlier fortress located a mile to the south.

The Welsh captured the castle in 1404, but it was recaptured by the English four years later. In 1637 it became a Royal mint by Charles I, and produced silver shillings. The castle was slighted by Oliver Cromwell in 1649. (info courtesy of

Although it’s just ruins now, it’s still a fantastic place to visit.
