DEVIZES CASTLE

DESCRIPTION + /

Neo Norman/Gothic castle and gatehouse built from 1842 with additions of 1860-80. Built on the motte of a castle first mentioned in 1106. The first castle was burnt down in 1113 and was replaced by a stone structure circa 1123. When visted by Leland circa 1540 much of the castle had fallen into ruin though the keep probably survived, for in 1645 the castle was held by the Royalists.
