Heritage Sites

Vale Crucis Abbey

Another site – saw the biggest fish pond for monks in the UK. Monks could eat fish but no other meat so needed a ready supply.


Plas Newydd

Another National Trust stately home. Not as grand as Penrhyn Castle but lovely none the less. Loved the study – left just as it was and it is utter organised chaos. 22 more words


Caerphilly Castle

The home of Caerphilly cheese and surprise – another castle. Quite impressive with inner and outer moats. It is right in the centre of the village with beautiful parkland incorporated. 37 more words
