Manorbier Castle

Manorbier Castle © Crown copyright (2013) Visit Wales

William de Barri built the stone fortification in the early part of the 12th century. His son, Geraldus Cambrensis, also known as Gerald of Wales was born at the castle in 1146. He was known as a great scholar and wrote of Manorbier "In all the broad lands of Wales, Manorbier is the most pleasant place by far".

Manorbier was seized in 1645 by Parliamentarian forces during the English Civil War. It was then allowed to decay throughout the 17th and 18th centuries until in 1880, the castle was partially restored by J.R.Cobb.
