BRIDGWATER CASTLE

DESCRIPTION + /

Castle, built in 1202 by William de Briwere. It passed to the king in AD 1233 and in 1245 repairs were ordered to its motte and towers. It was mostly destroyed by Parliamentarian forces in 1645. The site was identified by excavation, and the course of the moat is visible in the cellars of nearby buildings. The only surviving remains of the castle that can be identified with certainty are the Water Gate and the remains of the curtain wall on either side of it, the latter now incorporated in the walls of modern buildings. Scheduled.
