Tiverton Castle
Wednesday 22 May 2019

Tiverton Castle

Few buildings evoke such an immediate feeling of history as Tiverton Castle.

Originally built as a motte and bailey castle in 1106 by Richard de Redvers on orders of Henry I, it was fought over in the Civil War. Nowadays the Castle is a peaceful, private house, and the buildings, furnishings and exhibits reflect the colourful history and development.   

We are fortunate that Alison Gordon will conduct a guided tour for us.
