Oystermouth Castle

One of my favourite castles - Oystermouth, near Swansea. Edward 1st once spent Christmas here!

 Recent renovations include a viewing platform to see the chapel at the top of the castle.

 View from the other side.
 To the right of the window and barely visible, are the flecks of paint of an angel from a fresco in the chapel.
 One of the murder holes for castle defence.
 The view of the sea from the castle - an ideal viewing point.
The view from the battlements.

There are so many castles in the UK I want to visit. Why are those blasted lottery numbers always the wrong ones? ;-(

I know what you mean. If only someone would pay us to visit them:)
