SH7877 : Conwy Castle

near to Gyffin, Conwy, Great Britain

Conwy Castle
Conwy Castle
Built between 1283 and 1290 for Edward I. The stone used for the main part in the construction of the castle and walls is the eponymous hard, grey, Ordovician, Conwy Castle Sandstone, of which the castle rock itself is formed. The quarry from which the stone was excavated now forms the main town-centre car park, after long use as a rubbish dump.
