Conwy Town Walls
Conwy Town Walls
Conwy Castle and the town walls were built on the instruction of Edward I between 1283 and 1289, as part of his conquest of Wales. Conwy was the original site of Aberconwy Abbey, founded by Llywelyn the Great. Edward and his troops took over the abbey site and moved the monks down the Conwy valley to a new site at Maenan. The parish church still retains some parts of the original abbey church in the east and west walls. English settlers were given incentives to move to the walled garrison town, which for decades the Welsh were forbidden from entering.
