Penyard Castle, Penyard Park, Weston-under-Penyard, Ross-on-Wye HR9 7QA View on map

The ruins scheduled as Penyard Castle are situated 1.5 miles south-east of Ross-on-Wye located across land managed by the Forestry Commission and land in private ownership. The ruins date back to the 14th century as a castle in the hands of the Talbot family that was believed to have been destroyed in the late 17th century. The ruins of the only surviving building are thought to be Medieval in part, possibly a part of the original castle's domestic ranges. The small surviving building has been extensively adapted using masonry recycled from the original castle and was inhabited until the early part of the 20th century. It is aligned north/south with gable walls at each end linked by walls on the east and west sides with a small ruined extension extensing outwards on the east side.
