A new candle arch for the Big Cheese

Venturing a little further afield, this is Caerphilly Castle, just over the hill from Cardiff.


The castle was built in the thirteenth century by Gilbert de Clare; a huge and elaborate fortification built as part of his plan to dominate Glamorgan.  The Big Cheese Festival (26th to 28th July) takes place with this spectacular castle as its backdrop, so we certainly couldn’t ignore it!
