To think that this great square hunk of masonry was once part of a great castle where some 12th to 13th century accounts recall a great hall, a King’s Chamber, a Queen’s Chamber, a royal kitchen, pantry and butlery, stables, a great tower with a dungeon, a tilt yard, a barbican in which was the Constable’s house and a prison, a drawbridge and a well. When the castle was destroyed by Cromwell in 1646, over the years much of the masonry was used to build and maintain some of the local dwellings, but a few pieces still remain to remind us of what once stood here.
