Images, pictures & photos of Llantilio Castle better known as the White Castle in the Monnow valley, Monmouthshire, Wales The Monnow valley was on an important medieval route that ran between Hereford and South Wales. To guard this valley three castles were built, the White castle, Skenfrith and Grosmont castle. The Norman earthworks the Castles stand on were probably built by William fitz Osbern, who was made Earl of Hereford by William the Conqueror a few months after the Norman Conquest of England in 1066. These early castles would have been made of timber and remain so until the late 1185-87 when Ralph of Grosmont built the curtain wall around the inner ward. The three castles were strengthened and altered by Hubert de Burgh, who was granted their lordship by King John in 1201. The castle consisted of an walled outer ward within which is a moat that surrounds the inner ward. This was accessed via a wooden draw bridge across the moat.
