The entrance to Flint Castle
The entrance to Flint Castle
A popular site for families and interested castle historians. The mighty round tower on the right is the keep or donjon at Flint - separated from the main body of the four-square castle and intended to be the last line of defence if the castle fell to a siege or attack. This design feature, along with a few other clever defensive measures, makes it unique in all the many hundreds of castles in the whole United Kingdom.
