CLUN CASTLE


The evocative ruins of Clun Castle are set in magnificent countryside on the edge of the tiny town of Clun. It is a dominating position on natural high ground in a loop in the river. The original castle was Norman, erected to help dominate the border area between Wales and England. The estate came into the hands of the Fitzalan family, who went on to inherit the earldom of Arundel and the duchy of Norfolk. Clun was an administrative hub, attacked several times and was in ruins by the mid-16th century. Its remains include a massive tower and sections of masonry, with extensive earthworks of two baileys, plus the site of medieval gardens.
Car park on the south side of the river Clun, near the old bridge. Nearby Postcard Café recommended.
