Caergwrle Castle © Crown copyright (2013) Visit Wales

Caergwrle Castle was built between 1277 and 1282 by Dafydd ap Graffydd who launched an ill fated rebellion against the English which led to Edward I’s successful military campaign in Wales. The ruined castle was rebuilt by Edward I but was abandoned shortly afterwards due to fire damage.

Caergwrle Castle is 5 miles from Wrexham on the Mold road.
