History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
In 1197 the English handed the castle back to the Welsh voluntarily, in exchange for Gruffudd ap Rhys, an ally who had been taken prisoner. In 1212 Robert de Vipont rebuilt the castle, but it was finally destroyed for good in the 1230s, probably by Llewelyn ap Iorwerth.
The sizeable earthworks, which measure about 27 metres long by 13 metres wide, were probably much larger than they are now.
