Kidwelly Castle

Visited Kidwelly castle in Carmarthenshire. Built in the 12th century by the Normans, it fell to the Welsh on a number of occasions in the late 12th and early 13th centuries, including once in 1159 when the Lord Rhys took it and burnt it. He is later credited with rebuilding the castle in 1190. By 1201, however, it was back in Norman hands and remained English from then on, despite periodic attacks. (Ref: Castles of Wales website)
