Flint Castle - The Story of Edward I's first Welsh Castle

Built in 1277, Flint Castle was the first of Edward I’s ring of castles along the North Wales coast. For centuries it was of considerable importance and the site of key events in British history. The ruined castle remains an imposing landmark along Flint’s coastline but is often overlooked by historians and visitors to North Wales.

This carefully researched and well-illustrated book tells the story of the castle and the town that was built in its shadow, and will help both visitors and locals to appreciate this once mighty fortress. The book includes a detailed colour guide to the castle today that will help you interpret the ruins and visualise the castle in its heyday.
