Photographer's Note

This is a photo from the top of the Keep tower looking down into the inner Keep wall.

The Norman keep was built on a high motte on the site of a Roman castra, first uncovered during the third Marquess of Bute's building campaign. The Norman keep, of which the shell remains, was constructed about 1091, Robert Fitzhamon, lord of Gloucester and conqueror of Glamorgan. After the failed attempt of Robert Curthose, duke of Normand, William the Conqueror's eldest son, to take England from Henry I, Robert of Normandy was imprisoned here until his death in 1134.

I took a series of 6 vertically oriented photos and stitched them together. Unfortunately TrekEarth seems to have a limit on the total number of large panormaic versions you can postóTotal space may not exceed 10 megabytes for large images. So I won't be able to post any more... :o(
