Frizztext’s A to Z Challenge: R is for Rhuddlan

It’s time again for Frizztext’s A to Z Challenge, this week it’s R. From my travels, R could be for Rievaulx, Rothenburg, Rye, Reims-Geux, Rhuddlan, Regensburg, Riquewihr and many others.

I think I shall go for Rhuddlan, or at least, the ruined castle there (R is also for Ruin). It’s many years since I’ve been, so this is a nostalgia trip. Rhuddlan castle was one of the earliest ruins I saw, and one of my favourites as a child. I started on the passion for piles of old stones early!

Rhuddlan is in Denbighshire, Wales. The castle dates from 1277, and is quite an impressive ruin:

Hop over to Frizz for more R here.



  1. Haven’t visited this yet, looks great. Striking drum towers!

  2. A very impressive ruin indeed, Frizz. It looks great in B&W.

  3. This is just up the road from where Rich grew up (in Coedpoeth).

    Thanks for introducing me to a great new place! It looks positively poetic. Next time I’m in the UK, I’ll see if I can visit.

    • Bear in mind that image was taken 30 years ago! Who knows, the land around might have been built on….but I think, probably, the scene will still look much the same. 🙂

  5. Can’t beat Wales for castles, ruined or otherwise 🙂

  6. That is a fantastic photo Sue the composition is magical and the subject so suits monochrome

    Lovely … it would be interesting to stand in the same place and take another now … maybe someone has …. 🙂

  8. “R could be for Rievaulx, Rothenburg, Rye, Reims-Geux, Rhuddlan, Regensburg, Riquewihr…” – congrats! I only visited Rothenburg and Rome and Regensburg…

  9. Do you use Photoshop now?

    • sorry about the delay, I’ve been on my travels! well, only 7 days, but good to see a new place. I use Apple’s Aperture most of the time, occasionally Photoshop if I need layers, oh and for resizing….

  10. Great example Sue! Looks worth exploring.
