Summary Description

Hawarden was the home of the Victorian Prime Minister W E Gladstone although the owner was his brother-in-law. The parkland round the castle contains trees which were spared Gladstone’s axe. Ewloe has a castle built by Llewellyn ap Iorwerth and enlarged by Llewellyn ap Gruffudd. Owain Gwynedd’s attempt to ambush Henry II probably took place in the nearby Wepre ravine.
