• LOCATION 14 | Discovering Conwy: The Medieval Walled Town on a Waterfront

    Aberconwy House

    Stop at the corner and have a look at the house on your right.

    This building is the oldest in Conwy, after the castle and church. It has been dendochronilogically-dated - there's a good word! It means they took a piece of wood and tested it to 1400. It looks quite English - because, don't forget this was a town populated with English settlers. The top storey is jettied out over the pavement to give more space and the solid outside steps also date it as an early building as cantilevered staircases didn't come in before the 1600s.

    When you're ready, press the button for the pedestrian crossing, and once across, continue down the hill towards the Quayside.

Preview mode limited to first 3 locations.
