Rather interesting Caerphilly facts
Did you know that the South East Tower of Caerphilly Castle leans at a greater angle than the slightly more famous Leaning Tower of Pisa? The medieval castle, second in size in Britain only to Windsor, was ‘slighted’ (which always sounds like some mild insult) by Cromwell’s forces in 1648, leading to the South East Tower splitting in two. Now the 20m of the structure that remains leans three metres off true.
