Dinefwr Castle: History

The great circular keep belongs to a group of similar structures, such as those at Bronllys, Skenfrith and Tretower (as well as Dryslwyn), most of which are dated to around the 1230s.

At Dinefwr, the keep and adjacent Welsh gate may have been the work of Rhys Gryg, who held considerable influence, and - for the last fourteen years of his life - presided over a period of relative peace, during which he may have had the opportunity to embark on building operations of this scale.
