Just outside this pretty Monmouthshire village stands well-preserved Raglan Castle, a mid-15th century fortified house used as a fortress during the War of the Roses. Said to be the last medieval castle built in Britain, it eventually became the home of the Earls of Worcester. During the Civil War it suffered a 10-week siege by Cromwell’s forces.
