BARNWELL CASTLE

DESCRIPTION + /

Castle constructed in 1266. It was oblong in plan with round and D-shaped corner towers and a gatehouse at one corner. Nothing remains within the walls as the buildings were demolished circa 1540. Remains of the walls and corner towers were excavated in 1980. The interior of the castle was probably used as a farmyard during the 18th and 19th centuries.
