Holt Castle (Historic siege)

Author File Description
File Details
Map Size: 400x400 (Large)
Difficulty: Hard
Holt Castle, known as Chastellion or Castrum Leonis from the
lion sculpture above its gateway,
was built some time between 1282 and 1311 by John de Warren,
who was granted the area after Edward I's final defeat of the Welsh.
He chose this low-lying but strategically
important site on the west bank of the Dee in preference to Dinas Bran,
which he apparently did not maintain. The King's architect may
have been responsible for the design of the castle.

It was probably intended to guard the river crossing now occupied
by the Holt-Farndon bridge a little further downstream.
The castle must have been high enough to see to the west and to the crossing point.
The visible remains are difficult to interpret since almost all the stonework
was removed between 1675 and 1683 for the construction of Eaton Hall,
about 5 miles downstream.
A survey of 1562 shows all the towers as round with a rectangular
external annexe containing the chapel running full height of the
south-eastern tower opposite the gate as square or rectangular.

Dido This should be deleted!No reason why he gave you 3.5!
Lord Karpathea Ahmedko, your reviews are not within review guidelines. You need to put a comment with each category. Your only comment, "good jop" (I'm assuming you mean "job") does not reflect your score. A 3.5 five is only slightly above average, but still room for improvment. Tell the map maker what is wrong with the map, and how he could improve.
