This is in a flat area on the southeast
coast of the island of Anglesey, near the place where the Romans
slaughtered the last great conclave of Druids
Beaumaris, begun in 1295, was the last
and largest of the castles to be built by King Edward I in Wales.
Raised on an entirely new site, without
earlier buildings to fetter its designer's creative genius, it is
possibly the most sophisticated example of medieval military
architecture in Britain.
Beaumaris Castle is the great unfinished
masterpiece. Started in 1296, it was the last of the massive
Edwardian fortresses of the 13th century to be built in North Wales
Money ran out before the fortifications
reached their fall height. Beaumaris is nonetheless an awesome
sight, regarded by many as the finest of Edward's Welsh castles.
