Nevern Castle - Castell Nanhyfer

This is an Iron Age promontory fort site which has a later motte and bailey castle within it. The castle is Welsh, which fell to the English then won back by the Welsh. It was thought to have been abandoned by the mid fourteenth century. The castle mound can be clearly seen and there are three rings of banks and ditches in the north and west. The castle motte is on the north west side of the enclosure. The site is situated on a hillside above the village and is about two miles north east of Newport off the B4582.
