- Agincourt 600 Celebrations at Trecastle
There is a free exhibition of Agincourt 600 at Llywel Church at Trecastle for a week starting this weekend on the 15th August and an Agincourt Themed Flower Festival. More information can be found here.
The home of Watkin Lloyd, captain of the Welsh archers at Agincourt, Trecastle is a small village with a big history. Situated between Brecon and Llandovery, it takes its name from the castle built here in the early 11th century.
This simple Norman motte-and-bailey structure saw plenty of action – English King Edward I even spent time here in efforts to suppress a revolt. The castle remains can still been seen and are the biggest and best-preserved of their kind in the Brecon Beacons National Park.
As one of the villages that supplied men to the ranks of the Welsh archers 600 years ago, Trecastle will be doing its bit to mark the anniversary of the Battle of Agincourt
