Raglan Castle - A Closer Look

All photographs copyright 1998 by Irma Hale

This photo essay is kindly provided to the Castles of Wales web site by Irma Hale who visited Raglan in 1998.

The photo essay below explores some of the finer surviving detail at handsome Raglan Castle in south Wales. In particular, you'll find several photographs of the gargoyles that sit atop the highly decorative 15th-century gatehouse at Raglan. Some of the gargoyles served as rainwater spouts. (I just love these guys!) Photos of some of the castle's other surviving detail are presented as well on page numbers 4 & 5. Whether you're familiar with the castle or not, I'm sure you'll appreciate these close-up views of some of Raglan's enchanting and whimsical surviving features. Enjoy!

And after you've finished here, don't forget to visit our Raglan Castle page and our Virtual Tour of Raglan for more photos and a history of the castle!
