Nestling deep within a secluded part of the border Shire of Monmouth, White Castle was the lead Military castle within a strategic triangle formed with Grosmont and Skenfrith castles to control this area of the southern marches.
The castle is one of the most overlooked castles in the region with its impressive outer defences, deep water filled moat and nearly complete inner ward. The magnificent and impressive keep itself is in superb condition, is accessible and offers tremendous far reaching views over the marches for many miles.
The outer baily defences are very well preserved - in contrast to most other castles in the area The current visible stonework mainly dates to the 12th and 13th centuries and the white rendering of the time gave rise to its name.
