Abergavenny Castle is an 11th century earthwork motte and bailey fortress, founded by Hamelin de Ballon. In the 12th century, the de Ballons, added a rectangular keep to the motte, founding the stone castle. In 1300, the bailey was divided and given a high curtain wall, flanked by square towers and a gatehouse. Slighted during the Civil War, the Marquis of Abergavenny crowned the motte, with a Regency hunting lodge in 1819.
