Part of the 3 Castles Grosmont is not as big as White castle nor does it take up the same area as Skenfrith but it is impressive and has it's fair share of history. It was once the scene of a daring night attack by the Welsh in 1233 and besieged by Owain Glyndwr in 1405. relief came in the person of Prince Hal (later King Henry IV)
It's earliest remaining structure is the great hall which was built around 1210. The gatehouse dates from the second period of construction (1220-1240) .
