5520071English Heritage: Lydford Castle And Saxon Town
DateThursday 1st January 2015 to Tuesday 31st December 2019
DescriptionBeautifully sited on the fringe of Dartmoor, Lydford boasts three defensive features. Near the centre is a 13th-century tower on a mound, built as a prison. It later became notorious for harsh punishments - 'the most annoyous, contagious and detestable place within this realm'. To the south is an earlier Norman earthwork castle: to the north, Saxon town defences.
