TROWBRIDGE CASTLE

DESCRIPTION + /

A castle, first mentioned in documentary sources in 1139, and probably abandoned by the 14th century. Leland referred to it as 'clene down' in 1540 and in 1670 Aubrey said it was a 'ruinated castle'. Fragments of the ditch and tower and ramparts were extant in the early 19th century. A large ditch, pottery finds and part of the motte have been uncovered during building work and small scale excavations. There are `Traditional' claims of sections of castle wall in various nearby buildings.
