Abergavenny Castle 24

Introduction

The picturesque ruins of Abergavenny Castle are landscaped with 19th-century walks overlooking the Usk valley. In the late-19th century there were further garden developments and the castle walls were embellished with gazebos. All that remains of this phase is a level lawn and a raised rockery.
