History

TRÊCASTLE, an ancient ward of the borough of Brecknock, in the parish of Llywel, hundred of Devynock, union and county of Brecknock, South Wales, 11 miles (W. by N.) from Brecknock. It derives its name from a castle, said to have formerly existed here. The present small village of Trêcastle seems to have formed the old town of Lluel, or Llywel, under which name it is frequently mentioned in the charter of Brecknock.[1]

Trecastle, a village in Llywel parish, Brecknockshire, 11 miles W of Brecon. For further information, see Llywel, Breconshire at genuki.org.uk

Trecastle's history makes it one of the longest-established Brecknockshire villages, thus the Motte & Bailey is considered an important ancient & medieval monument and the village contains a number of listed Georgian and Medieval properties. See Wikipedia for a detailed history.
