RAGLAN, A SPLENDID MEDIEVAL CASTLE OF MONMOUTHSHIRE

RAGLAN, A SPLENDID MEDIEVAL CASTLE OF MONMOUTHSHIRE

Half a mile from the village of Raglan there stands upon a small hill or knoll the castle of Raglan, which was built by the Earl of Pembroke is a good example of the domestic influence on fortification. There are outside windows, but there are also a keep and moat. Fairfax took the castle in thež Civil War. The "slighted" ruins were eventually restored to the owner, second Marquess of Worcester, the Raglan Engine, a kind of pump. It seems to have been used at times for sousing Puritan visitors.
