Rhuddlan Castle - river gatehouse
Rhuddlan Castle - river gatehouse
Viewed from the castle ramparts is the remains of a defended river gatehouse on the east bank of the River Clwyd, made navigable from the sea by conscripted labour. In a feat of astonishing medieval engineering, a two mile deep water channel was constructed so that ships could sail in right up to the castle, making it possible for it to be relieved in times of siege.
