Grosmont castle is in the picturesque village of Grosmont in Monmouthshire. Along with Skenfrith Castle and White Castle it formed a defensive ring around the volatile border region between England and Wales. Known collectively as 'The Three Castles' they were combined under the same Lordship in the early part of the 12th century. They remained in joint ownership until the early twentieth century, when they were sold off to separate owners. These days they have been united once more as they are all under the care of CADW, and visiting the three on the same day is a pleasant trip.

White Castle was originally known as Llantilio Castle, but became known as White due to the white render on the walls of the castle, fragments of which can still be seen today. White Castle is very close to  Skenfrith Castle and Grosmont Castle,  and they were  known collectively as 'The Three Castles' as they formed a defensive ring along the strategic area in the borderland between England & Wales.
