Agincourt Places

Sycharth Castle, Powys


By Stephen Cooper

Sycharth Castle is difficult to find; but it lies close to a minor road, off the B4580, to the S W of Oswestry.

It was one of the estates of Owain Glyndwr, who led the most successful Welsh rebellion of late medieval times against English rule (for more information about Owain Glyndwr click here). It was razed to the ground by Henry V in 1403, when he was Prince of Wales. What does the site have to tell us about the battle of Agincourt?
