|Carew Castle - front entrance|
Gerald's fortification was later replaced by a stone Castle built by his son William, who had taken the name "de Carew." In the middle of the 12th century William created an enclosure with stone walls incorporating the original keep; he also added a "Great Hall" inside the enclosure. Much of what remains of Carew Castle today was the work of William's son, Sir Nicholas de Carew (who died in 1311), who was responsible in particular for the east and west ranges.
There is obviously far more history to Carew than the brief outline I have given here. If you're interested in Welsh castles and their history I suggest you visit Carew yourself buy the guidebook. :)
Mean time here are a couple more images of the magnificent Carew Castle to whet your appetite.
