This fortress of near-perfect symmetry is an unfinished masterpiece. It was the last of the royal strongholds created by Edward I in Wales. Unfortunately lack of money and trouble brewing in Scotland meant building work petered out in the 1320s. The south gatehouse and the six great towers in the inner ward never reached their intended height. The Llanfaes gate was barely started before being abandoned. So the distinctive squat shape of Beaumaris tells of a dream that never quite came true. Gloriously incomplete Beaumaris is perhaps the supreme achievement of the greatest military architect of the age.
