Lots of Castles to see in Wales.

9 Aug

I have a personal list of almost thirty Welsh castles to visit. This is Newcastle Emlyn. I have listed the postcodes for my faithful little Garmin Sat Nav. We are making the time to visit a small group of 3 and possibly 5, to see very soon. The rest will be picked off one by one later in August. Then, still planning to do the NC500 too.

This is Ewloe Castle near Chester. Some of these sites are close enough for a day trip but we intend to stay overnight in the campervan for the vast majority on our chosen list.

This is Nevern Castle, near Newport, South Wales. Guardianship for each Castle lays with different organisations. Some cost as little as £4 to visit, others more than double that amount and some with additional parking charges.

Criccieth Castle overlooks a lovely, old seaside village. We camped there when we were just out of our teenage years. A favourite spot and our return visit long overdue !

I am shortly having a simple medical procedure to remove a heart monitoring device which, after three years has found no clinical problems. So pleased that the battery outlasted the horrible , leaky, gel oozing batteries we used to get in our Christmas present Robots and the like from Hong Kong. Anyone remember them ? After the Titanium has been whipped out to ease the NHS funding, we shall be out and about once more. Oh yeah………….
