This summer I’ll be embarking on an epic medieval wander through the magnificent castles of King Edward 1st (reigned 1272 – 1307) in North Wales. It’s a very exciting project, and the blog will follow my adventures in real time, and tell the fascinating story of how these English castles came to shape the lands of the last native Prince of Wales.
The majestic Conwy Castle will be explored on the tour.
In July I’ll be setting off on my mainly walking tour of King Edward’s ‘Iron Ring’. Starting from Chester and working my way across North Wales around to Harlech, I’ll stop to explore each of the great castles, unearth their stories and chart the events that led to England and Wales becoming united under this 13th Century warrior king. So join me on a real Castle Quest and track the epic medieval story of how a Welsh prince and an English king locked horns and changed the course of British history.
