View of Conwy Castle in Carmarthenshire, Wales. The castle, built between 1283 and 1293, was designed in a linear form and instead of an outer circuit of walls it had open lower barbicans at each entrance. The King’s apartments were on the first floor, these included a Presence Chamber were Councils would have been held, a smaller chamber for more private matters, a chapel and a lobby for guests to wait in until they were received. The towers at the angle of the castle contained the bedchambers used by the King and Queen. On the ground floor were apartments used by the King’s officials.
