TraveLibro United Kingdom Torquay Featured City Berry Pomeroy Castle

Berry Pomeroy Castle

The Berry Pomeroy Castle gets its name from one of the true followers of the Norman conqueror, Ralph de Pomeroy who was the lord of the 106 manors within the county of Devon. The popular castle is also the most picturesque of all the existing castles here. It is well-protected by high walls and a gatehouse from which rise two hexagonal towers. Years of wind, rain and weathering have reduced the castle to a shade of its former glory and is now just a picturesque skeleton. Yet, we urge you to discover the ruins of this Tudor mansion built in the 15th century and uncover its intriguing history.
