Back in my youth as a boy I visited St Briavels in Monmouthshire, Wales with my parents and stayed with family friends in various houses/farms in and around the village over the years. Itís a delightful place to visit, quite small considering it has itís own castle.
The fine twin-towered gatehouse of this castle, built by Edward I in 1292, once defended a crossbow bolt factory which used local Forest of Dean iron. Once a prison, it is now a youth hostel in wonderful walking country.
