Dartmouth Castle - Devon - Castle

Dartmouth Castle - Devon - Castle

Distance 5.65 miles (9.04 km)
This brilliantly positioned defensive castle juts out into the narrow entrance to the Dart Estuary, with the sea lapping at its foot. Begun in the late 14th century, the castle was intended to protect the warehouses and homes of Dartmouths merchants. It was one of the earliest castles built with the prospect of artillery attack in mind. It is said that Chaucer based The Shipman character in his Canterbury Tales on the colourful John Hawley the merchant and mayor of Dartmouth who built the first castle on this site. Today, you can enjoy other tales of the castle as you journey through time from the Tudor period and the Civil War to World War II. Displays on the castles 600-year history add to the experience.

Berry Pomeroy Castle - Devon - Castle

Berry Pomeroy Castle - Devon - Castle

Distance 5.82 miles (9.31 km)
This romantic ruined castle is situated in a picturesque Devon valley and steeped in local folklore and legend. The gatehouse and defensive curtain wall date from the late 15th century and behind them are the remains of an Elizabethan country house built C.1560-1600 by the Seymour family. Edward Seymour, first Duke of Somerset also known as the uncle and governor of the boy-king, Edward VI acquired the castle in 1547. On the wall of the gatehouse chamber is a 15th-century painting of the three kings bearing gifts to Christ. A fascinating audio tour is also available.
