Neath Castle Goes Back in Time

If you missed Neath Medieval Day today -no worries! RDN photographer Mike Davies was there to capture some glimpses of the past for us

The first castle in Neath was located west of the river Neath near the Roman fort of Nidum, and was a timber fortification in a motte and bailey structure.When Richard de Grenville founded Neath Abbey close by, he abandoned this original castle, and it may have been used by the monks as a source of building material.[5]
