Castell Drefdraeth/Newport castle in summertime
Castell Drefdraeth/Newport castle in summertime
The view up from the crossroads at the top of Market Street shows how the castle dominates the small town below. Its melding of mediaeval and Victorian architecture gives it a curious and romantic appearance. Although it dates back originally to C13 there was considerable destruction and rebuilding over the centuries until Thomas Lloyd of Bronwydd grafted a dwelling house on to the ruins.
The castle remains in private hands and is not open to the public.
