Montgomery Castle

The Castle the towers above Montgomery succeeded the motte-and-bailey castle at Hendomen about 1 mile to the north-west after 1233.

 

The situation for the site of the new castle was stronger, steep rocky outcrops made for a more defensive building that was military fashionable. The new castle was built during Henry III's campaign against Llywelyn ap Iorwerth in whose hands Hendomen had left but whose fidelity had been rendered questionable by his siege, early in 1233, of Builth Castle.
