This unique site began life as a Celtic community more than 1,500 years ago but didn’t enter the history books until Richard de Clare built his military fortress on the hill in 1246.
As the overnight prison of King Edward II the castle saw centuries of rebellion and uprising.
Its residents were experienced longbowmen who fought gallantly for their Black Prince at Crecy and captured the Prince of Wales feathers as an emblem of war.
The presentment of a Charter in 1346 saw a community of Freemen emerge and the town continued to flourish down the generations, boasting a thriving market and even 27 pubs! As the home of Victorian surgeon and eccentric Dr William Price it was here that he controversially cremated his child which led to the passing of a Parliamentary Act.
