Photograph Gallery

Wiston Castle is a Motte & Bailey Castle in Pembrokeshire. It is named after a Flemish Knight called Wizo who was given the land by Henry I of England in the twelfth century and built the Castle. It was abandoned in the thirteenth century and is now a ruin in the care of Cadw and is open at all reasonable times. Opposite the Castle is the medieval Mary Magdalene Church.
