I can't place which side of the castle this photo was taken from as the walls don't look tall enough. Great photo though Anthony.

@Mike: I´ve only been there the once to be honest !! we parked in a large car park beside the walls outside of town and then walked through a gateway and walked up onto the walls.

Us Taff's must have been a wild lot,for our oppressors, to spend all that money, building castles all round Wales to keep us in order...Didn't work did it,were still annoying the hell out of them. ;>))

This is superb, Anthony. Fabulous in mono, allowing the stonework to shine through

I bet those walls could absorb the biggest cannonballs, another fine shot really showing the sturdiness of this iconic castle.

A great shot Anthony and in b&w it really brings out the details in the stone.
