ⓘ Beaumaris town walls

The town of Beaumaris was constructed by Edward I in 1296, following the English kings successful invasion of North Wales. The town was guarded by a castle, but had no protective wall. Limited foundations appear to have been built for a protective circuit, but despite requests from the townspeople for a town wall in 1315, none was constructed.

In 1400 the Welsh Prince Owain glyndŵr rose in revolt against British rule, and took the city in 1403, the city was not restored until 1405. In response, it was decided 1407 to build a city wall, moats and Earthen wall was built and 1414 stone wall was built, with three gates and the number of possible towers. This necessitated the relocation of residents whose houses fell in the way of new fortifications. Despite damage from the nearby sea in 1460, which led to some of the walls rebuilt between 1536 and 1540, the walls were maintained until the end of the 17th century.

Today only a few fragments of the wall survive, they are protected as a monument and a grade II listed building. There are some grounds "Gate, near the sea," Beaumaris castle, and the side wall of one property near the churchyard can be a part of the curtain wall, according to the authors 2009 guide to the buildings of the region. They also indicate that the stone was taken to build a house and Beaumaris prison.
