Major Coup for the Welsh Television Industry


Wales captures The Bastard Executioner in show of strength for TV industry

The grey walls and giant ramparts of Baron Ventris’s castle jut from a muddy quagmire on the outskirts of Bridgend in south Wales.

This rain-soaked stronghold is the latest addition to the principality’s impressive roster of castles. But the fort wasn’t built by Norman marauders or English raiders. Ventris took just eight weeks to construct on the site of an old open cast coal mine and its builders were TV set designers.

It is the imposing centrepiece of a new American cable TV series called The Bastard Executioner, written by Kurt Sutter, who created the hit dramas Sons of Anarchy and The Shield.
