View from Castell Dinas Bran

This evening, I am posting information on Castell Dinas Bran (Crow Castle) which overlooks Llangollen in N.E. Wales.

The site is open to members of the public prepared to undertake the 321.4m / 1054 ft ascent.

Approach to the castle.

This castle had a relatively short existence during the 13th century. However, prior to that the site was occupied as a defensive ‘fort’ during the Iron Age period, around 600 BC, with extant earthworks still visible from that period.

In good visibility, the high elevation site affords spectacular views over Llangollen, valley of the River Dee and the famous Pontcysyllte Aqueduct in the distance.
