Things to do: historic sites
Trecastle is a village in Powys, Wales, on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park.HistoryTrecastle is named after Castle Tump an early 11th-century Norman motte-and-bailey fortification, built by Bernard de Neufmarche and designed to protect Brecon from attack from the west. Despite this purpose, the area continued to be threatened, with Edward I of England spending three days in Trecastle quelling a revolt in 1295. The old castle name of 'una villa nostra de Lliwel' was changed by the end of Medieval era to the local name Trecastle, "the town of the castle". The fortification still exists at the east end of the village and the motte at 6.6 m high is the largest of its type in the National Park.From around the 12th century the Bishop of St David's owned the land to the west of the book and Trecastle was thus used as a staging post en route to the Cathedral. After leaving the stopping point the road is thought to have turned to follow the Roman Road near Y Pigwn. Centuries later, Trecastle was used by coach travellers as a stopping point on the route from Gloucester to Llandovery.
