"Small Village, Great Castle" Goodrich by Balam

Goodrich Travel Guide: 7 reviews and 31 photos

Goodrich Castle stands on a rocky hill commanding the passage of the River Wye into the picturesque valley of Symonds Yat. We had a walk around the Castle before visiting Ross on Wye and Symonds Yat

The castle was begun in the late 11th century but the oldest part that exists today is the keep which dates from the mid 12th century.
King Richard the Lionheart granted Goodrich along with the earldom of Pembroke to the famous William Marshal, a great castle builder who may have initiated work on the inner ward.

Goodrich boasts some of the most complete sets of medieval domestic buildings surviving in any English castle.
