Within Cardigan Castle

Photographs copyright © 1991 by Paul Adams

Because of the "peculiar" relationship between the former owner of Cardigan and the public, few people had ever seen the interior of Cardigan Castle. Fortunately, the Castles of Wales web site joined forces with Mr. Paul Adams, who was given permission to photograph the interior of Cardigan Castle in 1991. Mr Adams has graciously provided us with photographs from his rare expedition.
