Weobley Castle Title Pic

Weobley is a small castle and, in many ways, is more like a well fortified manor house. The castle is located on a hill overlooking the Llanrhidian marshes on the Gower Peninsula in southern Wales.

Construction was begun in 1304 but there is evidence that plans were changed while the castle was still under construction. A curtain wall on the north side seems to have been planned for, and a stone platform on the southeast corner may be the foundation for a tower which was never built.

My reconstruction of Weobley Castle is 30 x 30 inches (96 x 96 studs) and is 15 inches high. Much of the southern range lies in ruins today, and I have speculated freely in my reconstruction.
