In the beautiful town of Beaumaris(Biwmares), on the Isle of Anglesy, is a wonderful example of 13-14 century castle. Built as part of Edward I's campaign to conquer the north Wales. Building began in 1295 but, due to lack of funds, work stopped. Building recommenced but finally ceased around 1330. Although the castle is incomplete, it has much to savour, and by walking the wards and walls the visitor will have an idea of how fortresses worked. Near the main gate is a small area, now closed off, where ships, some carrying many tons of supplies, docked. The views of the town and countryside, from the battlements, is magnificent! After the visit, or before(!), there is the town which has a number of cafes and other holstelries! A visit, to this wonderful castle, town and island, should be in everyones list of visits or holiday plans. Enjoy!
