This Dig Diary gives progress of the excavations at Welshpool Motte (Domen Gastell) early medieval castle in Powys, over a week in August 2016. The dig is run by the Clwyd Powys Archaeological Trust with help from local volunteers. The project is funded by Cadw.

The excavation is part of a wider project called Welshpool Heritage Gateway which was designed to support and augment Cadw and Welshpool Town Council's ongoing conservation, public access and interpretation project at Domen Gastell and the adjacent Railway Transfer Dock.

The main objectives of the project are to restore the Crown Green Bowling Club created within the castle earthworks to its 19th century heyday as a new hub for the sport, to interpret the motte and bailey site of the well documented Welsh-built castle.
