CastleUK Blog
August 2008
The blog page, a place where I can record and then archive my monthly updates and what's new in our hunt for castles UK.
This months castles are from Flintshire, we paid a return visit to our favourite Welsh castles in the area and picked up some new ones on the way, it was good to get back to Wales, a land full of mighty fortifications.
We have only added one new castle this month because when looking at the pages in 117, I just had to update them, adding some of the new pictures I had taken. First of all I changed the name of Mold Castle to Bailey Hill, which is the name on the information board at site, also I've added new pictures and a new write up. There's new pictures and write ups for Elwoe Castle and Trueman Hill, which are two great little castles, with a new write up for Bryn-y-cwn and Tyddyn Mount, all this takes time but they were all out of date, with old pages. With GB doing so well at the Olympics, there are so many videos to watch at the BBC website, it's very hard to find time to work on the site, come on GB.

Comlongon Castle Wallpaper
Comlongon Castle, OS 85/NY 079-689 Dumfriesshire Scotland, is this months wallpaper.
The picture was taken in November 2007 and the view of the 14th century medieval Scottish tower and the Baronial hotel was taken from the garden. We were the only ones in the hotel and had a great night there, the owner was also good enough to let us go to the top the tower. My picture of the solar, is the only one I've ever taken (and I've taken plenty), with orbs in it but I didn't see them at the time.
Caergwrie Castle
Caergwrle Castle, OS 117/SJ 307-572 Flintshire Wales, is a late 13th century keep and courtyard fortress, founded by Dafydd ap Gruffydd. Standing on top of a steep-sided hill, in lands that were given to him after King Edward I 1277 invasion of Wales, it was the last stone built castle of a native Welsh prince. The site is owned by the Caergwrle Community Council and is freely accessible in daylight hours. Standing on the top of a hill you can't miss this castle, its a nice not to steep walk up to the top, go get climbing you'll love it.
