Walter de Lacy together and his two sons Roger & Hugh, quickly set about building a castle at Weobley on the Welsh border near to Hereford. Time was short so a Ring & Bailey castle as an early headquarter was quickly built for their border defences. Walter was soon in battle with the Welsh warlords. Over the following years they engaged in many skirmishes with the Welsh and built many Motte & Bailey castles within Herefordshire and Staffordshire.
