First stop inside Wales (just) Ewloe Castle is a typical Welsh Castle, as opposed to the many built later in the land by English invaders.
The castle is little known, and hard to find but the 1km trek across a muddy field is well worth it.
The castle was probably built by Llywelyn ap Gruffudd around 1257 and has a characteristic d shaped tower.
