Flint Castle open for August Bank Holiday Monday

FLINT Castle has been reopened to the public today (Bank Holiday Monday).

Broken glass has now been removed from the Great Tower.

The Edward I castle was closed by the historic environment service Cadw after reports of anti-social behaviour and vandalism at the medieval site.

Its Great Tower remained closed following the site’s partial opening last Thursday.

But from 10am until 4pm today visitors will have unlimited access throughout the Edward I castle.

Cadw, which is responsible for the castle, carried out a detailed site inspection last Thursday morning.

A Cadw spokeswoman said: “The Great Tower area required a thorough and deep clean.”

North Flintshire district police inspector David Roome says the force looks forward to working with Cadw to ensure Flint Castle is a safe and welcoming place to visit.

A meeting is due to take place on Wednesday, September 9 to discuss better security.
