Description

Coity Castle is a medieval castle located in Bridgend, Wales. With a history dating back to the 12th century, visitors can explore its ancient walls, towers, and gatehouse. Learn about its past and the battles fought there.

Originally founded in the early 12th century, Coity’s remains are a centuries-spanning jumble of architectural styles that reflect its lengthy occupation. Begun as an earthwork castle around AD 1100, the stone keep and curtain wall were late 12th-century additions.

Major rebuilding took place in the 14th century and again in the 15th, after Owain Glyndŵr laid siege to the castle during his uprising against English rule. Further modifications were made in the early 16th century, including the addition of a third floor.

Though the castle is now a ruin, remaining features from each era shed light on its long and storied life.
