Hay-on Wye, it lies on the Welsh side of the English and Welsh border. The town was recognized as 'The Hay', it has taken the name from Norman source, Hay or else Haie, which means a fenced or evade enclosure. 'Y-Gelli', in the Welsh form, which means 'Grove'.
As the visitors take a stroll about the town, you won’t avoid noticing the entrance of the Norman castle that overlooks over the tapered streets lying below its walls. This castle substitutes for the original castle and also much smaller, constructed on an imitation mass near to Hay's township church on St Mary's Road.
This olden mass is still seen. The historic significanes the castle and the town are impossible to disentangle, since William de Breos II, the most notoriously deceitful of the Norman Marcher Lords, erected the current castle in 1200. It is described as a town of books.

It was known as the 'castello de haia', it was given... more to 1st Earl of Hereford, Miles de Gloucester, in 1121.When he got married to the daughter of Bernard de Neufmarché.  This is the oldest Norman tower in Wales. The keep is approximately thirty feet square and at a time had four storeys. Due to insecure foundations, the corners of the tower have been rebuilt.
