View of Carew Castle in South Wales. The castle stands on a strategic position on a low ridge overlooking the Carew River. A timber castle was first built here by Gerald of Windsor in c.1100 but the stone castle depicted here was built by Sir Nicholas de Carew and successive generations of his family in the 13th and 14th centuries. The castle is built around a square courtyard; there are circular towers with square bases on the west side and more regular circular towers on the east side. The castle complex included two gatehouses, kitchens and a chapel tower.
